Hey all, as of tonight, I just hit 20,004 followers (I don't like the term "deviants", sorry) here on DA!  That's AMAZING!  I thank you all, one and all, for following me and I appreciate you.  Its an honor to have so many people care about my drawings, much less me.  This internet age is a crazy time.  I like most of it.  Anyway, since you are here and I'm thanking you.  You may also want to follow me on Instagram since I post a bit more frequently (you know, iPhone sketches and some pics here and there- different).  Or twitter.  Love you muy mucho!  -Tom

A sad announcement from me: I'm putting my webcomic Outnumbered Comic Strip on hiatus at least until the end of summer. I wrote a post about it that you can read, but the short version is that I'm over-committed on a bunch of artistic endeavors/ travel and there are some new ones on the horizon that I'd like to put time into also. Thank you for your support of OUTNUMBERED, its been hugely appreciated. More than you know.  www.outnumberedcomic.com/?p=65…

I don't often post Journals just to say hello, but I thought I would.  I don't have much time (as usual) because I've been traveling and hosting events like last week's Proweekend animation event here in Nashville.  Now, I have a few weeks of backed-up freelance and stuff before Florida (Miami) Supercon (booth #413), then directly to CA for a week, then a short drive to San Diego for SDComic Con (Booth #1903).  Work inbetween stuff.  I hope to meet some you at one of those events.  Anyway, I'm not here to sell anything (though I guess I just did) but wanted to say hello and I hope your summer is going great.  It was a rough winter, so just having the sun out is a beautiful thing.  It gets my juices pumping again.  Here's to more of that!  God bless, Tom

Today's Outnumbered Comic Strip​ gives away one of my jogging tactics.  See if you think like me or like the people watching me.  Share with someone you like lots.  www.outnumberedcomic.com/?p=64…

Tom Bancroft
Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
United States
I'm a former Disney supervising animator (Mushu from Mulan and a few others) as well as director at Big Idea Productions (Veggietales) for a couple years. For 7 years I co-owned an illustration/animation development studio, Funnypages Productions just outside of Nashville, TN.

I am now working on my own freelancing and doing other contract work for TV, film, comics children's books, video games and other kids stuff!

I wrote and drew 4 issues of my creator- owned series, "Opposite Forces". Also, I wrote and illustrated the character design instructional book "CREATING CHARACTERS WITH PERSONALITY" through Watson-Guptill publishing. My next book "CHARACTER MENTOR" comes out in 2012 from Focal Press publishers.

Hello Mr.Bancroft,
I'm an animation student a SCAD, focusing in mainly 3D but also 2D. I first heard about you from John Webber who I had as my Principles of 2D animation teacher. It must have been awesome working on mulan from the stories Webber told us in class. 
I recently put together a portfolio site [hoping to get a higher scholarship] and was wondering if you could tell me what you think [especially with the animations].

Hi Mr. Bancroft!
I just wanted to get your opinion on this. Would you recommend someone to go
to art school even if it cost a lot ? Like is art school really necessary to become an animator and join a studio? I don't think my parents have enough money so that I can go to college.

Hey there! 
I animated Elsa in 2d, though you might want to see :) And I hope this doesn't look like spam or anything, it's just that I share your enthusiasm for 2D and I heard you guys on the podcast talking about whether it will return again. Well, here's a little glimmer of hope.

Really well done!  Nice drawings for sure.  There's a few wobbles and ticks in her hair, shoulders, ear, etch, but you're mostly looking at the facial expressions and dialogue and those work well.  Keep it up and you can help bring it back!  Thanks for listening to the podcasts too.
