Mel Milton is a former character animator with Disney Interactive turned freelance illustrator who resides in Utah with his wife and daughter. He has been in the creative industry for over 25 years with clients like Sony, Nickelodeon and NBC Universal to name a few.
Mel has been quite influenced with comic art and most of his youth was spent trying to draw like a comic artist. Although he went a different route than comics, he spent a lot of his free time creating fan art of his favorite comic characters.
