Hello my name is Les Carpenter I was born in Columbus, Indiana. Graduated from the University of Central Florida. Majoring in Art and Animation. I also learned from the Don Bluth Animation Online classes and attended his Masterclass in Phoneix, Arizona during the summer of 2010.

I worked at the Walt Disney World Resort as an artist for 7 years teaching guests how to draw the Disney characters at the Animation Academy in the Disney Hollywood Studios Theme Park.

I'm also a freelance artist who's work includes Disney Interactive Studios for the Festival of the Masters in 2010 and 2011 and other clients. I am currently working on a pitch ideal for a cartoon television show/feature film called, "Crackerland". I also helped form an animation production company called, "Cow on the Roof Productions".

I have a love for effects animation and hope to one day be a professional effects animator.
