As a fifteen year veteran of the licensing, toy, and entertainment industry, Lawrence has worked on everything from Teen Aged Mutant Ninjas to Looney Tunes.
After attending School Of Visual Arts in New York, Lawrence was hired as head toy designer for Happiness Express Inc.
While there he had the opportunity to design everything from night lights to action figures. Working for a small company also meant wearing many hats. Lawrence gained valuable experience in package design, sculpture and styleguide creation.
After 5 years in the toy industry he moved on to a career in character illustration, creating style guide
art for Newline Cinema, Jim Henson Productions, and 4Kids Entertainment to name a few.
Among other things he is now one of the official licensing artists for Teen Age Mutant Ninja Turtles, Major League Baseball and Nickelodeon’s Go Diego.
Not content to just draw the characters, Lawrence has also made the leap to digital animation. To date he has worked on films for the web and broadcast television for companies like ABC Networks, Nickelodeon, and VH1.(IMDB)
Lawrence currently resides in Queens, New York where he plots to corrupt the minds of youth with silly pictures and funny books. Request a resume.
Every assignment begins with a brainstorming session and a series of rough sketches. We’ll take your ideas and explore very possible direction. Once you decide which one is right for your project we move on to the next phase.
Once a direction is decided we break your project into 5 steps. Rough Pencils, Layout, Blue Line, Digital Inks, & Digital Color. The artwork is built in a modular way with separate elements for easy editing.
Before the work is finalized, we go over the work with you to make certain we haven’t missed a trick. At this stage we can add, take away or reposition elements. Once your happy we can move forward and begin to tighten the work.
At this point we print the work out and do a final check and work on tweaks and color correction. The work is prepped for print and a high resolution file is delivered online via our website LCI-studios.com.
