Intense and Daring, Tracie Ching Makes her Thrilling Movies Posters with Digital Art

Tracie Ching is the LAST famous digital artist that we’ll be discussing in this series. She is a little different because she is not only more of a digital illustrator than many of the other artists, but she also works in vector graphics.

Though she is known for her digital movie posters, this is certainly not where Tracie started. She graduated in 2009 with a fine arts degree and she specialized in mixed media and sculpture. However, due to a couple different circumstances, she did not follow that career path.

Put A Face in It! How to Turn Boring to Humorous with Sean Charmatz

Perhaps the most recognizable work of this week’s digital artist Sean Charmatz would be his work as a storyboard artist and director for SpongeBob SquarePants. It’s true, SpongeBob is a really big deal, but SpongeBob was just the beginning of his career.

It all started when he was working as a tour guide and a phone service personnel at Nickelodeon in 2001. He worked at that position for 3 years before someone noticed his work and asked him if he wanted to work in the animation department. Barely able to keep in his excitement, he moved onto work with Spongebob for 6 years.
