These two bold, graphic paintings are by the very talented artist Jason Sadler, illustrator of characters humorous and expressive. Trained as an industrial designer and a student of animation at Sheridan College, Jason's professional career began as a designer and animator on Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? for Broderbund Software. In 2000 he joined Mondo Media's animation team where he designed and directed the award winning Heavy Metal Guy series, the Happy Tree Friends special short Ski Patrol and animated many of the regular episodes. In 2005 Jason joined the visual development department at Blue Sky Studios to design characters and environments on Horton Hears a Who! and is currently working on the studio's next feature Rio. In addition to his many animation-related projects, Jason has designed educational toys for Leapfrog Enterprises, contributed artwork to the national trust Totoro Forest Foundation, and illustrated a story for Random House’s Out of Picture book series. Jason's art has also exhibited in both the Society of Illustrators' 2009 Sequential Art Exhibition in New York and the Galerie Arludik in Paris.
