Sara Talmadge is a visual development artist and animator currently working in Eugene, OR at Disney Interactive. Her professional experience in the games industry ranges from casual mobile and social apps to core console titles. At Disney Interactive, she was the animator and illustrator for such games as Disney City Girl, an app that experiences up to a million peak DAUs. Sara has also worked as a freelance artist for Reverge Labs on their hit, Skullgirls, winner of E3 Conference’s Best Fighting Game Award, and as a Junior Artist at SIGNAL studio in Charlotte, NC for national clients such as NASCAR.

Born and raised in Yokohama, Japan, Sara spent her formative years surrounded by various cultural influences, many of which inform her illustrations today. Her sense of adventure and desire to pursue a career in animation led her to move to Savannah, GA for college, and she has since taken professional opportunities across the United States.
