Before graduating with distinction from Art Center College of Design, Dominick R. Domingo interned at Disney Feature Animation, training in all aspects of the animation process. After graduating, he spent ten years with Disney Feature as a concept artist and background painter, in both Los Angeles and Paris.
His Disney credits include Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Tarzan, Little Match Girl, and One by One. He also maintained a roster of independent clients including ORION Pictures, Parker Brothers, Milton Bradley, the Pacific Design Center, Comedy Central, and Wizards of the Coast. In the nineties Dominick illustrated a number of Books for Young Readers for Harcourt, Putnam, Penguin, Random House and Lowell House.
Dominick has taught at Art Center for over fifteen years, the first to offer Entertainment electives within the Illustration program.
In 2001 he attended the New York Film Academy and shifted his attention to directing live action films. His award-winning live-action films led him to a writing resume in the form of original screenplay credits. Around the same time, his narrative nonfiction essays were accepted into anthologies, two of which won the Solas award for Best Travel Writing in the humor category. The Nameless Prince, Dominick’s foray into Young Adult Urban Fantasy, was released in July from Twilight Times Books in 2013 and its sequel is due out in 2016. Dominick currently divides his time between teaching, his own projects, and working in house for companies such as Blue Sky, Animation Lab in Israel, RGH, and Disney Interactive.
