I&PG-095, Melany Altuna, Character Designer

April 15, 2020

Welcome to the Ink and Paint Girls podcast- a look at animation through the women who make it!

Hosted by Cassie Soliday


Today’s guest is character designer, Melany Altuna


Melany currently designs on the Disney Jr. show “Puppy Dog Pals” at Wild Canary, and has worked for clients such as Nick Jr., WB, Sesame Street, and Spin Master, to name a few. Originally from Venezuela, she shares with us her journey to becoming an artist and to moving to LA to make her dreams come true. But even though she’s left, she shares with us why it’s always on her mind and what she can do in it’s time of turmoil and political upheaval while still creating loveable pre-school characters at work.
