Tony began his animation career in England, 1984, working amongst the many commercial studios in London. At that time he specialized mainly in layout and background design, but also did some storyboarding, animation and a little directing.
In 1996 he and his family moved to Los Angeles, where he designed key locations for Warner Brothers Feature Animation, including productions; Quest for Camelot, the critically acclaimed Iron Giant, the live action/animation feature Osmosis Jones, and numerous development projects.
By 2002 Tony was art directing at Disney Toon Studios, bringing the Hundred Acre Wood to life again in Pooh's Heffalump Movie, a US theatrical release, and then in 2005 envisioning Ariel's early life in The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning.
In 2008 he designed and art directed five CG shorts for Warner Brothers, for use in the US government's emergency plan, PEPFAR, before switching gears in 2009 to design, art direct and codirect a sequence for Family Guy. Following that he moved to designing locations and characters for Junction Point, a Walt Disney company, for a major upcoming platform game.
In 2010 he returned to Disney, where he art directed several CG shorts, for both the Cars, and the Tinker Bell franchise, before moving on to art direct the last Tinker Bell feature, which sadly was cancelled due to a change in direction by the Disney Studios.
Still based in Los Angeles, Tony spreads his creative time between freelancing, working “in house” at various studios, and pursuing his own projects.
