Candice Santora

I am a self-taught, traditional artist and digital photographer with a degree in digital art for graphic design and video editing, but I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. My favorite mediums to work with are pencil, acrylic paint, and Photoshop. Most of my practice has been developed from recreating references of the Lion King and Beast Wars Transformers back in the mid to late ‘90’s; two completely different animations that involved animals, which I fell in love with. My talent has evolved from cartoon fan art to real-life animals, people’s portraits, and graphic design. I was also involved with toy designs and original art for a Kickstarter campaign with Play With This Too. For several years now, I have been assisting Garry Chalk with his graphic art and selling some of my art with him at conventions while I continue to create Beast Wars pencil art; I also manage his Facebook group “Garry Chalk Official Fan Group.” I have also recently started photographing pets and rescued animals who are up for adoption at my local shelter.
