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.

Dear Mr. Bancroft,

I own a collection of celluloid drawings, artwoks and graphite drawings from Disney Studios at home. They are currently being installed to make a "mini-museum". It happens that I have one of your drawings (The Little Mermaid - Cheer Princess') use for your older daughter, and I wish put cartels in order to explicate the context, the characters, technics, etc.

Would it be possible to send you a picture of this drawing, in order to tell me what were the technical details of the pencils used for the realization. And maybe if you have one anecdote about that.

Thank you very much. My email : florian.gisquet@laposte.net

Best regards,
Florian Gisquet

I read your animation book on MyOn and I have to say thanks, I'm going for an animation career and I'm planning on going to CalArts and your book really helped me with understanding certain aspects of animation and character design. Again, thank you so much.

I don't know if you know this but this person on Amazon is selling your design on a shirt.:

I only mention it because they took one of my pieces and are selling it as well.

Thanks for telling me Keith.  Sad to see.  I hope they aren't making any money, its so poorly done, I'm guessing they will be gone soon.
