After graduating, she worked at several different companies, including Google and Disney Interactive Studios as an animator/illustrator. When she’s not busy working, she enjoys kickboxing, working on gallery exhibitions, attending several local art fairs, and publishing her works in art books.
Ashley Taylor is a Freelance Designer and Illustrator living in Southern California. From the moment she saw Sleeping Beauty as a child, she became enchanted with the idea of becoming an artist. Inspired by legendary artists like Mary Blair and Eyvind Earle, Ashley challenged herself to find her own voice as an artist. Throughout the years, she has worked with various studios and properties including Disney, Her Universe, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Studio Ghibli.

Born and raised in San Jose, Jerrod found his love for art at an early age. He graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in Illustration and went on to work in the Educational Software industry as an art director. Since then, Jerrod has worked with several notable companies including Disney Consumer Products, Mattel & Hostess, to name a few. Jerrod is currently a freelance Illustrator and character designer residing in Sacramento, California.
An alumni and graduate of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, Joey was born in Taiwan and moved with his parents and sister to the U.S. when he was 15. His art reflects influences by prominent and obscure artists as well as influences by the Southern California lifestyle and culture. When not painting or sketching, Joey enjoys independent films, surfing, video games, and traveling.
Born and raised in San Diego, Matt has always been drawn to robots. From an early age he explored the idea of creating his own robots. Since he didn’t possess the ability to create an electronic-based one, his first ever robot was made in the 4th grade out of trash. From then on, the obsession with all things robotics began. Matt graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a degree in Entertainment Arts and began illustrating robots full time in 2010.
Jeremiah Ketner’s paintings are instantly recognizable amongst his contemporaries in the pop surrealism movement. His early work, characterized by mischievous sprites and whimsical patterns, has evolved into lush, richly colored environments inhabited by a cast of pensive, dreamy young women. Each character presents a unique brand of beauty, created entirely within Jeremiah’s imagination and painted completely from memory. Jeremiah’s pop culture-inspired style and unconventional creations have a traditional foundation. With his family’s encouragement, he began formal art studies at the age of 12. He holds a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design and an MFA from Southern Illinois University. Jeremiah’s paintings and toys have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in more than 50 galleries across North America, and he’s acquired a strong international following through his dedication to the Internet and social media.
