Ricky De Los Angeles dreamed of working for Disney as a young kid. Five years ago that dream came true in his current role as a Character Artist at Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products, where he draws Disney & Pixar characters that end up on merchandise around the world.

Some tips: “Draw every day. Try things outside your comfort zone, because the challenge will help you grow. Have fun doing it!”
