Thom Solo is a professional digital illustrator, colorist, story boarder, character designer, and artist for the past 18 years. After pursuing a degree in Graphics Technology and seeing the progression of illustrative art veer into the digital sphere, he started to bridge the analog and digital visual world with his work, embracing burgeoning tech with traditional techniques. His creative process begins with digital and pencil sketches, followed by digital and traditional inking, shading, and coloring to achieve his desired effect. He has shown his work in multiple gallery exhibitions and is a prominent figure within the art convention circuit. Thomas has also worked as a Disney artist and manager for 17 years at Walt Disney World.
