Introduction

Chris currently works as a Visual Development Artist at Disney.

His blog and podcast [ http://ChrisOatley.com ] feature inspirational instruction about visual art and storytelling, interviews with working artists, free Photoshop resources and audio journal entries.

He has contributed artistically to various animated films, television shows, video games and music videos for companies such as Disney, Universal, The Weinstein Company, Activision and Geffen Records.

His ultimate goal is to develop, write and direct animated film & TV projects.

The next step toward his goal will be the release of his first trans-media storytelling experience (a web comic with animated & interactive elements) which will go online early 2011.
