We recently brought on Greg Peters, an incredibly talented animator from Hannah-Barbera, to help us bring our retro cartoon characters to life. Greg has been a joy to work with!
Bio: Greg Peters is a professional character animator who claims that he was born with a pencil in his hand. He began drawing his favorite TV characters at the ripe young age of two years old. “I remember telling people that I was going to draw cartoons when I grow up”, he recalls.
In 1990 Greg graduated from the prestigious California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, CA with a BFA degree in Character Animation.

After animating TV bumpers for the FOX network, he landed an animation position on Ralph Bakshi’s feature film “Cool World”. Next, he was off to a Character design position on the popular “Rugrats” TV series. This was followed by being employed by video game giant Sega of America where he animated on various video games like Disney’s “Bonkers”, etc. Next it was off to Walt Disney Animation where he worked as a Character Layout Artist on “The Lion King -Timon and Pumbaa” and as a Storyboard artist on “Mickey’s Mouseworks”, “Mickey’s House of Mouse” and more.
