Stephen ReisStephen Reis was born in Los Angeles, California in 1974 and raised in nearby Santa Barbara. The Artist within emerged around age three, and as a young child he would spend countless hours drawing the worlds conjured up in his imagination.
Upon graduating from college, Stephen had turned his attention to animation, which in many ways combined his loves of drawing and cinema. In late 1996, he joined the animation crew for Fox's long-standing hit series "The Simpsons". The work environment on the show provided him with a second education as well as a paycheck, as he learned more about drawing and storytelling than ever before.
Six years later, Stephen is now an Assistant Director on "The Simpsons". He has also returned to Loyola Marymont as an instructor, teaching animation and film for the last four years. His work for The Disney Program with Collector's Editions bears many cinematic influences, a style born from the silver screen and poured onto canvas.
