JULY Art Show: Terry Naughton

We’re excited to welcome back well known animator and illustrator, Terry Naughton, who will be showing off his talents July 6-August 1, in the SCBL Winer Family Community Room & Art gallery.  Join Terry at his Artist Reception, July 16, noon-2 p.m., to hear fun stories about his “illustrious” career.

Currently, Naughton  is a freelance illustrator, but for 17 years, he was an animator with the Walt Disney Studios, working on almost every feature film produced by Disney from 1985-2002.  Some of his credits include, “the Beast” in Beauty and the Beast; “the Genie” in Aladdin,; and “Zazu” in the Lion King.






Naughton tells us, “Throughout my career at Disney, I’ve maintained my freelance illustration work.  I’ve illustrated Peter Mayhew’s (Chewbacca) children’s book, My Favorite Giant. My works also include National Football League book illustrations, sculpted sports action figures, story boards and some motion picture work with Warner Brothers.” Terry is also an official football artist for  USC  and  UCLA .  Naughton won the Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards in the prestigious P.N.W international art show two years in a row.

When not doing art, Naughton enjoys sports of all kinds, coaching high school wrestling, and is the strength coach and  running-backs/ linebackers coach for the football team.  Terry says, “Back in the old days, I was a competitive Olympic weightlifter, too.”  Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy the afternoon with Terry at his Artist Reception.
