Meet our January Speakers from Disney

We’re excited to bring over two Disney artists from Disney Consumer Products to kick off our 2014 programming. If you ever bought any products with Disney characters, you’ve probably seen John Quinn’s work. And all those retro-inspired, illustrative versions of Disney and Pixar movie posters, that’s Eric Tan. Read more about them and register for the talk on Jan 24th at or sign up for the poster workshop on Jan 25th.
