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

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.

Hi Mr. T! I just wanted to stop by and thank you for making such an amazing book as Character Mentor. I remember when you were first taking artists on for examples in the book and it took me long enough to order but I just received it in the mail yesterday. I had only skimmed through and read the intro before stopping to order your other book to go with it! You are equally gifted in teaching as you are your art and I already noticed improvement since starting the assignments. I know you frequent your dA often so I wanted to stop and personally thank you as your teaching methods really appeal to me. :) I'll be writing a positive review on Amazon as well. Thank you so much!

Sorry for this very late reply to your kind note about my Character Mentor book!  I really appreciate you leaving a note here on DA and a review on Amazon!  Thank you.  I'm thrilled that my books have been helpful to you.  That is my best reward of all.  My best to you in your artistic goals!
