This is Whitney’s first Comic Con as an exhibitor. She went to a fine arts boarding high school and then went to Otis College of Art and Design graduating in the digital art program in 2008. However, when I walked up to her table, she was painting with watercolors. She said she starts in traditional media and then scans it into PhotoShop to render it. She also has a fabulous job as a toy designer for Disney Consumer products where she primarily works on designing fairies. Whitney had prints at her table this year, but she plans to do a comic book in the near future.
