If you've not seen Todd White Art, this up and coming artist has actually arrived and currently is riding the wave of commercial success as an internationally-recognized talent. White has become one of the best known contemporary artists on the international art scene today. His Hollywood artwork series sold as Original Oils or Glicees captures timeless intimacy. White's paintings are captivating, demanding a second look, often invoking humor through exaggerated features he portrays in his characters. His rat-pack-meets-Picasso style results, in part, from his desire to reveal his characters' innermost thoughts and emotions. Each character depicts the subtleties of what people show and what they hide.

Todd White worked at Warner Bros. Studios on the popular series, Tiny Toons. Through character clean-up and development, this budding animator and visionary began to forge his own artistic style. As part of the lead animation team for the internationally renowned cartoon, Sponge Bob Square Pants, he mastered the art of storyboarding, illustration and character design.

Combining animation expertise with exposure to the Hollywood celebrity crowd, Todd White has quickly become a creative force and top selling artist in the world today.
