Hello, I'm Alison Donato and I artify things

Book of Life kids books just came out! :))) I got to help out and paint one of the books (Bet on It) along with some of my other coworkers who drew the background layouts. It was a super team effort between like 5 of us to get the books done in a super short time. 
The actual book illustrations are a bit spoilerish though, so here’s an unofficial style test I drew/painted did before we started the books, it was done in my own time to my show my take on the characters in a simpler kid’s-book style. It was based on a scene shown in the trailer. 
I’ll post the rest later (maybe after the movie is out).

A retelling of the “Book of Life” creation saga, and an epic saga it is. :P

"Produced by Guillermo del Toro" (YOU SHOULD KNOW WHO HE IS)

please pardon my screaming for the next 10 months

there are tears in my eyes right now
I need to see this movie

Yay! I <3 BOL. Guys get ready because it’s great…I worked on it and I totally love it! I’m so excited for them to release some promo stuff to the public. It’s great to have seen it slowly come together over the years at RFX. Wait ‘til you see visual style and look of the movie…SO AWESOME.
But yeah the worst part about working on cool projects under NDA is having to wait so long for everyone else to see it! Secrets = :(

New Site!
I made a proper portfolio website, like a cool and official person (finally):

So much NDA (Book of Life) stuff I wish I could put up there now, alas it&#8217;s the curse of entertainment work&#8230;.one day, one day. The spiky creature is an old drawing because I like to at least add a doodle along with text/shameless site-pimping posts.
