Wednesday What's What: Chris Sasaki and Nicholas John Frith

February 9, 2016

Red Cap Cards artists, Chris Sasaki and Nicholas John Frith are the what's what this Wednesday!

First up, if you haven't seen Pixar Studio's Inside Out, make it a priority for your weekend! Red Cap Cards artist, Chris Sasaki, shines as character artist for the film, and walked away from the 43rd annual Annie Awards with an Annie for his work creating all of the characters in the film. His Instagram is a veritable treasure trove of working sketches. Make sure to follow him and check out his designs for Red Cap here.
