The brilliance of Lorenzo Martinez

Postby Charles » Thu Oct 28, 2010 11:43 am

At AN Night this past Teusday evening, there was a group of industry veterans in attendance. One of them came to the podium to introduce himself. he had a big smile on his face and as he approached, I immediately recongnized who he was. It was none other than Lorenzo Martinez.

I was really happy to see him. This was the first time our paths had crossed in years. We used to work together at Filmation Studios on the He-Man and She-Ra TV series. He was working as a background designer and was one of the best I had ever seen.

His experience in the industry is vast. Lorenzo has been working steadily at DreamWorks since the time the studio was founded. Before that he was at Disney Features.

Not only is he a genius of an artist, he's also the funniest man I've ever had the pleasure of working with in my years in this business.

A great and good hearted fellow, you can see his art by going to his blog and scrolling down the page. There's plenty of images there to enjoy, including production work from Prince of Egypt, The Lion King, Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Little Mermaid, and even the He-Man show.
