“Santiago’s always been an amazing artist in never-stopping progression to excellence, always searching something new to learn and apply to his super appealing art. There’s something in his drawings, a kind of careful and full-of-deep-love approach to humankind, so delicate, that it’s special in his art. I’d absolutely recommend everyone to have a look at his stuff and i wish him all the best in his projects to come.”

“Any time you design a character for a Disney picture, especially a fairy tale, it’s going to become the definitive design for that character, so you don’t want to hack something out. You need to put in the kind of care it warrants if it’s going to live in history.”

Glen Keane.
