"Best of Disney Character from Live-Action Films" by Gary Schmedes
Watercolor and ink on paper | 2019 | 13" x 18"
Gary Schmedes (b. 1990) began working with Make Studio during his final year of high school, demonstrating his passion for spending his days making art. Gary had always exceled at drawing freehand in ink, but greatly expanded his use of watercolor and other paints after spending dedicated time each week to working in a studio. Gary has meticulous eye for detail and combines enthusiasm for anima-tion classics with a witty sense of humor and word play, creating interesting re-imaginings of familiar characters. He is especially fond of Disney and “old school” Nickelodeon characters, but fluidly combines several animation studios and genres. Gary is a graduate of St. Elizabeth’s School, lives in Glen Burnie, Maryland, and has a side business in paper shredding.
