I’m Joe Dela Torre and my love for art started when I was in 3rd grade. I would practice art by drawing Disney cartoons, comic book covers, and basically anything I could find as a little kid. Once I entered high school I discovered my passion for 3D and afterwards began pursuing it full time by attending the Art Institute. In March 2007 I completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Media Arts and Animation. Shortly after in 2008 I began working for Nickelodeon Animation Studio as a Character Modeler. I have also had experience working for studios such as Hasbro and Supervillain Studios. Credits include Order Up!, Fanboy and Chum Chum, Penguins of Madagascar, G.I. Joe: Renegades, and Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness. Currently, I’m working on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and have been in the Animation Industry for over 8 yrs. I continuously try to learn as much as I can as to improve my art.
I am a firm believer that if you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life.
