Mentor of the Day: Mingjue Helen Chen
The delightful and talented Mingjue Helen Chen is our newest addition to the mentorship program! She is an Art Director currently working at Paramount Animation on an unannounced upcoming feature, and has previously lent her Visual Development talents to projects such as; “Wreck-it Ralph”, “Frankenweenie”, “Paperman”, and Disney’s upcoming “Big Hero 6”.
Mingue Helen is one of the hardest working artists you’ll ever meet – besides working in the studio, she always seems to be working on her own art, and still manages to have time to be an excellent educator! We are so pleased to have her join Motivarti and have a personal one on one Mentorship with a student from anywhere in the world! Check out some of her work below!
In addition to creating her own art books, last year Mingue partnered with her artistic peers Lorelay Bove, Brittney Lee, Claire Keane, Lisa Keene and Victoria Ying, to create a book featuring their work from their show, “Lovely” in Paris this year. The Kickstarter was a huge success, and you can buy the book on Amazon or directly from the artists themselves later this month at San Diego Comic-Con.
If you want a mentor that is extremely dedicated, and you’re an artist ready to dedicate ten weeks to kicking butt and developing your draftsmanship, Mingue Helen Chen is definitely the mentor for you!
