Frank Cordero
3D Character Designer

I got my computer graphics start in the early nineties

for such companies as AT@T and Ogilvy and Mather

in interactive multimedia.

However my interests in traditional drawing and

storytelling led me to spend 8 years at Walt Disney

Feature Animation working as a character animator

on 6 award winning Disney feature animated films

including “Mulan”, “Lilo and Stitch” and “Brother Bear."

I freelanced as a concept artist for Walt Disney

Imagineering while teaching traditional animation

and story at Ringling School of Art and Design.


With the birth of my first of two daughters I ended up

back in interactive, first as a concept artist and later

as an associate art director for Electronic Arts on 7 AA

and AAA sports titles totaling over 6 million units sold

on such titles as “NASCAR 2006: Chase for the Cup”,

 “Madden 2006”, and “Tiger Woods PGA Tour


I’ve been teaching at Full Sail in the CA division
since March 2009.
