Bobby Chiu

Character concept on Alice in Wonderland, Disney, Warner Brothers, Dreamworks, Sony….

I can’t believe I haven’t featured him before now.

I guess because he’s doing so much and everywhere that I thought you’d all already heard of him.

Bobby offers brilliant art, support and advice for the committed artist that I’d recommend you all go out and follow, subscribe, join whatever platforms he’s currently broadcasting his tips.

‘Cuz they’re gold.

The Perfect Bait

Years ago, when Bobby started down his art career path, he kept a notebook with all the tips and advice that worked for him to propel him to the level of success he’s achieved so far.

He’s compiled that list into an audiobook/app for artists starting on the path.

Bobby’s great and getting people charged up and committed to their art goals. “Punch laziness in the face!” The book is also loaded with grounded, solid advice for those wanting direction in the biz of animation and character design.

His advice really applies to most artistic pursuits.

It’s worth a look. Truly.

Clearly commitment pays off.

This last piece is the same as the one Bobby has signed in the very first picture at the top of this post.
