You may have noticed the beautiful artwork at the top of this page. If you remember from my previous post by the name “Logo“, I talked about how I designed my company’s logo, but eventually was going to get someone more talented to redesign it. Well, I was fortunate enough to get my extremely talented friend Jason Scheier to do the redesign as well as do this beautiful concept art. In the above mentioned post I talked about having a reoccurring vision, and that was where my logo came from. I never had the talent to bring it to paper, but I believe Jason did an amazing job at it.
When I was younger and first started to dream about doing what Walt Disney did I always thought I would name my company as he did. I built my dreams around the idea of Eric Miller Animation, so now that I’m actually starting my studio there was never much thought about what it would be called. Although, through my experience in the industry I have heard of downsides to naming it after the founder. At this point it is hard for me to think of the studio as anything else, and there are a few reasons why I still plan to name my studio Eric Miller Animation.
