Imagining The Grinch: Creating Concept Art for Film
Yarrow Cheney — I grew up in southern California and have loved drawing and painting since childhood. I studied character animation at CalArts from 1992–95 before beginning my career as an animator on films like Cats Don’t Dance and The Iron Giant, then transitioned into production design.
I spent the last 10 years working for Illumination in Paris, production designing and then directing. I co-directed The Secret Life of Pets and just finished directing The Grinch.
