PAGLIACCI by Marty Davis

The Aria Serious crew was pleased to welcome a new artist to Pagliacci rehearsals, Marty Davis. Marty began his art career as an animator for BlueSky Software, a local San Diego firm where he animated video games such as Ren & Stimpy, Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote, and Vectorman. While animating, Marty began to explore the world of fine art sculpture, quickly making it a full-time career. In addition to working for San Diego's late master sculptor A. Wasil, Marty taught sculpture and anatomy for The Athenaeum of La Jolla, The Watts Atelier, and UCSD Extension. A 2005 move to Paris ended his local teaching career. Upon returning to the States, Marty rejoined the interactive industry as Animation Director for THQ's Heavy Iron Studios, where he co-directed the animation for the Ratatouille and WALL-E video games, receiving an Annie Award for Best Video Game Animation in 2007. He has since branched out into storyboarding and graphic novels, where his clients include Mass Animation, Fox Animation, Cirque de Soleil, Sony and DC Comics. You can see more of his work at his website which you should, because based on what is below, you'll quickly become a fan.
