Derek Thompson Story Artist Pixar
CTN would like to welcome back to CTN eXpo story artist currently working at Pixar Animation Studios, Derek Thompson.
Derek Thompson was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1972, and has been drawing monsters since before he can remember. Many things contributed to Derek’s early fixation with creatures and the Unknown. Around age 5, he discovered Godzilla, Frankenstein, Star Wars and Ray Harryhausen. Other early revelations involved Dr.Seuss, Heavy Metal Magazine, Frazetta and R.Crumb. As a child, Derek also had a deep interest in paleontology, which lead to many, many dinosaur drawings. An avalanche of films, comics and cartoons followed, with Derek drawing all the while.
