Dominick Domingo joins us on Java Chat to discuss the power of storytelling. After graduating from the Art Center College of Design, Dominick went on to work at Disney Feature Animation as an artist for 11 years. He helped create some of Disney’s most iconic animated films like the Lion King, Pocahontas, the Hunchback of Notre Dame and more! On top of his Disney experience, Dominick has also illustrated books for major publishers, written several narrative books, created award-winning short films and founded the Entertainment track at Art Center where he taught for 20 years.
In this episode, we describe what a creative process is and what it looks like. In Dominick’s eyes, a creative process is present everywhere—not just in stories but also in life. From one’s own imagination to the science behind biology, creativity lives and breathes in many forms. Similarly, a creative process looks different for everyone. Whether yours starts by taking a walk through town or by remembering an emotional memory, Dominick finds that creativity simply happens when it happens.
Currently, Dominick has a fictional book series released that he describes as a classic hero’s journey. Check out the links below to grab yourself a copy of The Nameless Prince and its sequel The Royal Trinity. Dominick also has a blog where you find more of his personal thoughts and updates.
