Artist Research: Sarah Mesinga
Sarah Mesinger is a character designer and comic artist that lives and works in Texas. Mesinga is a graduate of Sheridan College's classical animation program. She has worked as an animator for tv like Jimmy Neutron and several animated films like Warner Bros. Ant Bully, but is currently working on a graphic novel, called Flight. Her work is interesting to me because she manages to infuse her own style consistently into every character design, illustration that he does. It is a fairy tale illustration book type style with an edge stemming from her unique manner of rendering form and anatomy. Her digital painting style is also very loose, but grounder in her drawing ability which is a skill I can identify with.
