Adventure Time, Powerpuff Girls Designer to Hold Workshop in Davao

December 17, 2018 - Monday 7:12 PM by PR

LA x DVO and Cinedashery East/Midtown Films has invited Santino Lascano, Background Designer and Visual Development Artist from Cartoon Network, to Davao City to share his craft with aspiring Davaoeño animators and designers.

A Workshop on Environment and Background Design in Animation will be held on December 19, 2018, at Regus Spaces, on the 6th floor of Felcris Centrale.

Davao-born Santino Lascano is a Los Angeles-based artist. His background and environment designs can be seen on Adventure Time, The Powerpuff Girls, The Angry Birds Movie, and more. He has worked with Cartoon Network, DreamWorks, and Disney, to name a few.

His illustrations help create the worlds we love to escape to, and that our favorite characters move around in. From episode to episode, his work shows detail and versatility that speaks volumes in its own right.

Santino has a natural knack for mentoring and sharing his knowledge with others. “Sharing the craft was the way I got my first job in the industry,” he said. “Someone took a chance on me when I was fresh out of school. I feel like I should do the same and pay it forward.”

He says that he hopes “to see more original ideas and different voices and authentic stories, not just with background design or animation, but with visual storytelling as a whole.”

The whole-day workshop aims to show a glimpse of the day in the worklife of a designer at a studio.
