Former Disney video game illustrator Mauricio Abril has found a cheeky way to get back at his former employer. Let's say it is the ultimate satirical tutorial on what happens when you truly start getting Disney characters right.
Abril use to be a scientist who researched gene expression in fruit flies. When he discovered he was more artist than scientist he applied to and eventually graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA with a degree in Entertainment Design.
Abril also worked in Disney's theme park division. His other assignments included toy design for Hasbro Inc.
Currently Abril is at BRC Imagination Arts as an Art Director on themed entertainment projects.
During his off hours he writes and illustrates picture books for his own children.
