 Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation

About Design Field Notes:
Each informal talk in this pop-up series brings a design practitioner to a Jacobs Hall teaching studio to share ideas, projects, and practices.

About this talk:
Ever since he could pick up a pencil, Tim Evatt has been creating art. He grew up in Redlands, CA, and was/is inspired by films, television, and comic books. He has a singular love of art and always wanted to be a professional artist. In 2000 he graduated Redlands High School and headed to SF to attend The Academy of Art University. For the next 5 years he studied Fine Art and Illustration. Following that, he worked in the games industry for a short three years, until being hired by Pixar in 2008. He has been there nearly 10 years working as a sets designer and, occasionally, a character designer. He has been credited on Toy Story 3, Cars 2, The Good Dinosaur, Finding Dory, Coco, Incredibles 2, and various shorts. Occasionally he teaches at the Academy, doing some lecture classes, but preferring to work one-on-one with students mentoring and helping them craft portfolios that will hopefully land them jobs.

NOTE: This talk had originally been scheduled for 9/11; the date shown here is the rescheduled date. We hope to see you on 11/27!
