Hey All.  I don't think I mentioned this to all of you here on Deviant art, but I FINALLY have a website!  It's got a sampling of my portfolio, links to purchase my art books, a blog where I post new sketches and stuff, and a STORE with original art of mine!  Check it out: Tom Bancroft Studio 

{PLUS- FOR YOU COSPLAYERS- please share with your friends that I just posted on the blog (at my website above) and in my store a one of a kind REY STAFF prop replica inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  I think all you Rey's out there will like it- its made by my prop master buddy and the quality is top notch!

AND- Today is the LAST DAY of my "Art of Tom Bancroft" book Kickstarter!  MANY of you have supported/backed it already and I thank you for that!  IT IS going to happen because we reached the goal (on day one) but I'm exctied that we just hit the STRETCH GOAL yesterday to publish a SECOND book (my Outnumbered comic strips book), so make sure you back at the $60 or above amount so you can get BOTH books!  www.kickstarter.com/projects/t…

I have a bunch of stuff I want to let you guys know about!  Here's the list:

1) New Bancroft Brothers Animation podcast with me and my twin bro Tony interviewing Tom MacDougall, the Music Supervisor for all the Disney and Pixar films!  Here it on iTunes or here: taughtbyapro.com/?p=6977

2) My "Art of Tom Bancroft" hardcover book only has a WEEK left on Kickstarter.  Please back it.  ALSO, there are some art/character design instruction from me as some of the Reward tiers.  Check it out: kck.st/1SuSgkt

3) #MerMay is in full swing on my Instagram account (MerMay is where I (and other artists) are encouraged to draw a mermaid everyday in May).  Check mine (tombancroft1) and others out on Instagram by searching the #MerMay hashtag.  Its fun!


Thanks for taking part/viewing/commenting/and/or backing all the stuff I'm into.  I appreciate the viewership!  -Tom B.

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.

Hi Tom. Have you ever thought of drawing Mushu together with Dojo from Xiaolin Showdown as school buddies who also play their own music(Mushu on gong!) and making up a song called "Gong Yi Tanpai"?
