Dylan Sisson is an painter, illustrator, and toy designer. His independent animated shorts have won several awards. Dylan currently resides in San Francisco where he draws and paints wall-eyed curiosities with big teeth, and works at Pixar Animation Studios as a day job.
“My favorite subjects are those that mix contrasting themes, like a character that’s on the verge of being cute or being frightening at the same time. . . I like that tension. For example, what’s the difference between a pet and a monster?
A pet licks you. A monster eats you.”
“Best Computer Animated Short”
