About the instructor

Piper Thibodeau is a freelance character designer based in Montreal, Canada. She has done work for Nickelodean, Dreamworks, Intel, Penguin Books and more. But she is best known for her puntastic daily paintings, which she has been doing since 2012. The best of her paintings are collected in a book of her work, “Daily Paintings: The Art Of Piper Thibodeau.”

Piper is a young up-and-coming digital artist who began working for companies like Scholastic, Random House, Sesame Street, and Dream Works while still in ART SCHOOL!  She began her daily paint challenge in 2012 and built an online following much bigger than many veteran artists working in animation and publishing. She has also created a must-have art book showcasing her most pun-tastic work, funded through Kickstarter. Piper is definitely an artist to follow!

In this video, Will Terry chats with Piper as she creates one of her daily paintings for your viewing pleasure. They discuss her art process, getting into the business, schooling options for artists and more in this packed 2-hour episode.
