Wahoo!  Disney XD is now airing the station ID I animated in glorious 2d Animation!  It was designed and directed by Sam Levine (co-creator of Penn Zero: Part Time Hero) with clean up, efx, and compositing by the amazing Moving Colour studio!  Thanks Sam and Brian for inviting me into this crazy fun project!

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!

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.

I just finished looking over your art gallery, and I am still in awe. Your artwork is still simply the best. Just one thing: my birthday is coming up next week, and I was wondering if you could draw one of my OC'S in a cartoon? If you need help, look up my art page for ideas. I suggest that you use a female one, nothing dirty. Thanks a lot! ✌😉
