Brother Thomas Film
I first met Luis in 1994 when he moved to Chicago to begin teaching at Columbia College in the animation department. We were both charged with developing core classes and it was immediately apparent that we shared the same love for story and animation. When Phil Vischer was looking for a story artist for his VeggieTales project I knew exactly the artist for the job.
Luis’ sense of character and his flair for dramatic expression comes through in the image he created for the Guest Artist Gallery. Luis’ Brother Thomas is both older and younger than the Thomas who’s been showing up in my storyboards. A red-haired young man, completely in the moment, breathing in the freshness of the new day.
