Alan Bodner is an award-winning artist and art director whose work
ranges from some of the world’s most recognized cartoon characters to
multidimensional pieces that combine patterns and shapes into unique
Bodner is currently the art director on “The Life and Times of Juniper Lee,” a Cartoon Network original series. Previously, Bodner was the art director on the Emmy-nominated Disney Channel hit series “Kim Possible” and the bestselling Disney home video “Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas.” Prior to that, Bodner’s credits include the Warner Bros. hit animated feature “Iron Giant,” for which he won an Annie Award, and the now-classic Bugs Bunny short “Carrotblanca,” which was included with the special DVD edition of “Casablanca.”
Combining his experience as a highly successful studio art director with his inherent sense of color, shape and design, Bodner has moved away from animation in his personal work. He has spent the past couple of years creating innovative pieces of art that reflect his unique perspective and vision of the world around him. Bodner’s pieces are diverse in style while still remaining consistent to the artist’s distinct thoughtfulness and design.
When Bodner’s art is closely observed, one can sense a certain edgy quality that is a subtle offset to the beauty of the color scheme, shapes and patterns of the overall image. Bodner then incorporates the dramatic element of assemblage which give his creations dimension and a cohesive consciousness.
Bodner began his career working on shows such as “Mighty Mouse,” “The Fat Albert Show” and “Heckle & Jeckle” after graduating from the prestigious Art Center College of Design.
Bodner currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
