Teacher Ali Naqvi Is a freelance Character Concept Artist based in San Jose.  He received a degree in Biochemistry at UC Davis before pursuing an art career.

Like most artists, he started with traditional media before moving on to Photoshop, and now has more than fifteen years of experience with digital media. 

His biggest influences are Disney Movies and Hanna-Barbera Cartoons.
