Tom Foxmarnick was hired by Disney Studios in the early 1980s as a production artist and worked on notable made-for-TV animated features such as The Little Mermaid, Scooby-Doo, Tom & Jerry, and others. Often juggling several free-lance jobs on TV shows and for consumer publications, Foxmarnick ultimately played an instrumental role in 37 TV shows and a number of humor and horror comics. He honed his craft and parlayed his ideas into a forty-year career eventually also working with Warner Bros. Studios, Sony Studios, and Nickelodeon. Initially paid solely for his storyline ideas, during the nineteen-nineties Foxmarnick developed many of the comic magazine CARtoon storylines and drew nearly entire issues single-handedly. It is his art from this time that Foxmarnick will be showing. A few of Foxmarnick’s original hand-drawn pieces and one-of-a-kind tour-de-force creations that he is so well known for in the industry have been computer colorized.
Foxmarnick will show a wide variety from his catalog of drawings with select works being offered for sale. Foxmarnick’s fantastical creations will generally be organized into superheroes, CARtoons Magazine, and a variety of outrageous animal drawings that are all suitable for framing and will become the focal point of any art collection. All guests for this event are asked to sign-in at the front reception desk upon arrival. For more information or driving directions please telephone The Lexington at (805) 644-6710.
