My friend Don Hahn has produced a documentary that's getting quite the critical aclaim. It's no surprise that Don would be connected to such a cool movie.

The documentary follows war vets with disabilities as they climb mountains to help them cope and heal from their war experiences. 

I love films like this that show the power of the human spirit and inspire all of us to perceiver!

check out the trailer!

Waking Sleeping Beauty!!!

Wow! If you love animation and love great documentaries, "Waking Sleeping Beauty" is for you!  Don Hahn directed this great look back at the Disney studio's during the time when Jeffrey Katzenberg was working there and it's pretty informative on the studio's rise with the Lion King as it's crescendo.  It tells the story in a very honest way and really leans heavily on the greatness of Howard Ashman as well.  He helped them shape so many great songs that are just as incredibly popular today as when they were released!  The bonus features are fun and through out the film you get insights from many great artists including Glen Keane.  I had a great time watching this and I hope all of you go out and get your copy soon.

This one is a must buy!

EVOKE The Art of David Pimentel

Update:  Any orders in the month of December will receive a 4x6 original signed sketch of my "French girlie" similar to this one. (Without the frame of course)

My Book is now available!!!

I've been developing my art for many years and learning as much as I possibly could from many great artists who surround me and from those who've come before me.  This book represents all those years of inspiration and excitement I have for gesture sketching and art!

If you follow my blog or know me at all, you'll know that my mentor was Walt Stanchfield.  He was such a great teacher and great friend.  His teachings have spread through out the animation world like wildfire over the years and his notes are completely invaluable to any artist.  I am proud to say that I wouldn't be able to be where I am in the industry without having learned so much from him and I hope that my book can sit on the same shelf as his.

This hardback 100 page book is a compilation of many sketches, gestures and anecdotes for artists young and old.  To top it off I've been blessed to have one of the great producers of our time, Mr. Don Hahn, write an awesome forward for the book.

I'll be releasing my book at the CTN expo this coming weekend but if for those of you who can't make it, you can order it by clicking on the cover image on my side bar.

DRAWN TO LIFE lecture at Woodbury University


photo by Jamie Keslarian Bolio

the night was a great success and nice turn out. I thank Don Hahn and ASIFA for putting it all together. All the other panelists and artists who knew Walt, shared such great stories and it was a true testament to Walt's wonderful personality and generousity.

thanks again Walt!

On Wednesday June 10, I will be joining an amazing group of panelist for a lecture on Walt Stanchfield's "Drawn to Life" books. It starts at 7pm in the Fletcher Jones auditorium of Woodbury University in Burbank. The panelest include Andreas Deja, Dave Pruiksma, Ruben Procopio and Don hahn!

It's going to be fun talking about Walt's work and teachings followed by a "QandA" session and book signing. It's first come first serve seating and parking is free at the university.

see you there,
