A BRIEF INTERVIEW WITH TIM:
Do you have any advice for aspiring artists who wish to work at ANL?
Work hard, practice and don’t give up! Have a good attitude and be professional! These are all important qualities will go a long way toward making you a better artist.
What is a dream project of yours?
With all the time and money in the world, I would love to make a feature length 2D animated movie – either an original story or adapting something. The Silmarillion is something I always thought would be cool animated and you could use the medium to really push the fantastical and mythic feel of the story.
What is your favorite fictional character and why?
Yakul from Princess Mononoke. He has amazing personality while still feeling like an actual animal, his animation is wonderful and I wish he were real.
What would you be doing if you weren’t an artist?
I’d probably be a paleontologist, digging up dinosaur bones somewhere in the Badlands or Mongolia. Or maybe a shepherd, probably in Scotland.
