    Peter de Sève was born in Queens, New York in 1958. He began drawing as a child, inspired by the comic books he collected, as well as science fiction and fantasy illustration. At Parsons School of Design he was introduced to contemporary and nineteenth century American and European illustration, all of which continue to inform his style. In his twenty-year career, de Sève has been published by nearly all major American magazines, including Time, Newsweek, Atlantic Monthly, Smithsonian, Premiere, and Entertainment Weekly. He also frequently contributes covers to The New Yorker. In 2002, he illustrated Mark Twain's A Murder, a Mystery and a Marriage, published for the first time by W.W.Norton.

    De Sève has designed posters for Broadway shows, as well as characters for numerous animated feature films, produced by Disney, Dreamworks, Pixar, and Twentieth Century Fox (Blue Sky Studios). His credits include The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Prince of Egypt, Mulan, A Bug's Life, Tarzan, and the box office hit, Ice Age, for which he created all of the characters. In addition to his extensive work in animated feature film, de Sève has provided designs for television commercials, including a Nike spot, titled "Destination Moon," which won a silver Clio award. In 2002, he received the distinguished Hamilton King Award from the Society of Illustrators.

    Peter de Sève lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, Randall and their daughter, Paulina.

    thanks for the thread, paradeyes!

    even in his more detailed work you still get a sense of his speed with the hand, like the brushworks for the donkey and elephant.. it's great

    I thought I recognised this style!
    Yeah, I agree that his style is witty and humourous... very suited to cartoons and animated films.
