I love Gabby Zapata's character work. I can't remember when I came across her but she has an incredible style, sense of color, and attitude in her work. It sings with life. Check out a few of these!
Gabby works in animation, comics, and illustration. You might have seen some of her work in films like The Legend of Tembo, Tangled, Alebrijes, and she is now a lead designer at Disney. She is from LA and both Mexican and Colombian!
