Thomas Thorspecken Art Gallery
Sunday, May 31, 2020
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until Wednesday, June 3, 2020
Born in New Jersey, Thomas Thorspecken (Thor), is an artist, urban sketcher, muralist, illustrator, animator, instructor, and a journalist. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City, before working as a freelance illustrator designing magazines and publications.
Thorspecken came to Orlando as an animation artist for Disney and over a ten-year period, he worked on numerous films like The Lion King, Mulan, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Pocahontas, and Lilo & Stitch, just to name a few. He currently teaches (or has taught) a variety of art courses and workshops at Elite Animation Academy, the Crealde School of Art, Full Sail University, and Urban Sketchers International. Since January 2009, as a New Year’s resolution, he has created at least one sketch a day documenting the vibrancy and life of arts and culture in Central Florida for his Analog Artist Digital World blog, culminating in more than 4,000 individual works of art illustrating this community and beyond.
You may have seen Thor at an event from the theater, the Chinese Dragon Parade, or at the Lake Eola Farmers’ Market, sitting off in a corner or in the shade somewhere. Check out his blog, www.analogartistdigitalworld.com. You may even find yourself drawn across the pages of his sketchbook!
