Visual Development Artist for Animation

Joel Parod

A collection of my student work and my professional illustrations that have been published on various forms of media for clients include St. Martins Press, San Jose Mercury News, Interact Magazine, Stern Magazine (German), Urth Mother Music, Microsoft, Ohio Health, DisneyToon Studios, Original Force and more.

I was fortunate to win prizes and be published in two student New York Society of Illustrators competitions in 1993 and 1994 for my 2 scratchboard illustrations. My first book cover, "The Paris Edge", was published in the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators in 1995 and was part of the group exhibition in downtown Los Angeles along side many of my contemporary illustration heroes.

The London background in the Tinker Bell Illustration was painted by Barry Atkinson and the characters were painted over gray 3D models.

The 10 Lives poster was my concept and painted by me, and designed in collaboration with Patrick Mate, Mark Koetsier, and Tommy Kim.
