A local artist from Sandy will be making an appearance at the FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention.

Thomas Estrada is an animator/ artist with 20 years of professional experience. He offers a line up of custom designed commissions, paintings and various art services, from animal portraits, to private drawing parties.

Since 1997, he’s had the pleasure of working in the animation industry on feature films and video games (The Prince of Egypt, The Road to El Dorado, Emperor’s New Groove, Atlantis, Treasure Planet, Home on the Range, Sinbad, Over the Hedge, God of War II, Gears of War II, Uncharted, Disney Infinity). Most currently, he is an official Foo Fighters artist. Check out his drawing here.

Estrada will be on a panel giving practical advice on what it takes to be an animator.

“For me, the biggest thing that got me there was meeting somebody that [told me what to do],” he said.

Estrada will be at the convention Sept. 6th-8th. Get details here.
