About Daniel Arriaga
After 3 years of studying art and illustration at The Academy of Art College in San Francisco I began working at Pixar as a Production Assistant in 2001 on Monsters Inc. and eventually made the transition in the Art Department on Ratatouille as a sketch artist. Worked and designed characters and sets for films such as Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up, and Toy Story 3 for which I was the Character Art Director. In 2009 I fulfilled my dream of working at Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, CA as a visual development artist on Wreck-It-Ralph and Art Director for Prep and Landing 2. However, in September 2011, I returned home to the Bay Area to work at Pixar where I worked on Inside out and returned back to Character Art Director on an upcoming Pixar film to be released in 2017.
