Sarah Marino - Shimmer and Shine, The Book of Life - Animation Invasion
In this episode, we revisit a Nerd For A Living interview with illustrator and animation artist Sarah Marino. Sarah currently works at Nickelodeon Animation Studios as a color supervisor on the Nick Jr series, Shimmer and Shine. She has also been a character designer and background painter on Shimmer and Shine, which is now in its third season. Before moving to Nickelodeon, Sarah was a visual development artist on the stunning animated feature film The Book of Life, from Reel FX. Sarah’s painted art appears both in the film and a number of the promotional materials and product tie-ins. We talk about Sarah’s education and artistic background, and how she transitioned from an early production coordinator gig into an artistic career.
