Hi. My name's Emily Sasaki. I'm a visual development and story artist currently in Denver, CO. I studied Animation at the Savannah College of Art and Design and graduated in May of 2019. While I spend most of my time hunched in front of a computer, I also enjoy spending my time finding new places to eat copious amounts of ramen. I have also lived in Los Angeles, CA, while working with Disney Imagineering.
WHAT I DO?
I specialize in concept development and production design: character and prop design, environment art, 2D layouts/backgrounds, 3D modeling/sculpting, and storyboarding. I was a Creative Production Intern with Walt Disney Imagineering and have worked on several senior thesis films, along with a company collaboration with Dynacraft, as a concept and head background artist. I have freelanced as a concept and story artist with clients in Atlanta and Los Angeles. My concentration is in 3D animation, so I also have a strong understanding in Maya and Zbrush (sculpting, animation, and modeling).
