Stephen Silver has been one of the most exciting character designers working in animation over the past two decades. He made his name with designing the characters for Nickelodeon’s Danny Phantom show, and fans still can’t get enough of his Kim Possible characters designed for Disney. He had contributed to many projects over the years such as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Kevin Smith’s animated Clerks, The Fairly OddParents, The Penguins of Madagascar TV series, The Cleveland Show, and Phineas & Ferb.
Silver has also devoted a lot of his time to teaching others the craft he loves so much by giving lectures to students around the globe, teaching classes online, and even in his own school in Southern California.
Silver has donated a couple of his educational, and extremely entertaining items for our auction. First, he has given us a signed copy of his beautiful hardcover book The Art of Silver featuring many character designs, illustrations, and life drawings. He also generously includes a gorgeous set of character studies hand-drawn on a 14x11” piece of textured paper with ink and red watercolor. These drawings are typical of what you will find in Silver’s book, and would class up your home framed and displayed on your wall. Book and art are both signed.
