My bro, Tony Bancroft, and I had a great time signing at the National Cartoonist Society booth on Friday and Saturday at SDCC over this last weekend!  What a great time we had getting together with old friends and making some new ones.  Too long of a list to list, but you all know who you are and I probably hugged you at some point too.  (I'm a hugger, what can I say?)  
A new POST-Comic Con OUTNUMBERED comic strip is up!  Check it and share it!…

EDIT:  ALSO- The awesome webcomicers Brad Guigar, Scott Kurtz, and Cory Casoni who do the podcast "Surviving Creativity" via their Patreon page (which I also support!)  Listen to it now!  We get into some crazy stuff about the Disney 2D days, Jeffery Katzenberg, and lots of other tidbits!…

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 Tom! I just want to say that I love your artwork and especially your frozen shirts! I wore "Yes! I'll build a stupid snowman" to disney today and got so many compliments! In fact, one of the concession workers gave me free ice cream because they loved it. Thank you and keep up the great work!

Tom you think it is necessary to study animation career to exercise? For example I studied graphic design, but what I really like is to illustrate. Can I be a professional illustrator but has not studied animation? You opinion is very important to me. 

Forgive my bad english CURSE YOU!

you dont need to study animation to be an illustrator their similar

but very different  my suggestion is that you build a portfolio geared towards

illustration since you like drawing  your graphic design skills should come in handy too

sorry im not Tom but i hope i helped XD
