Carter Goodrich

Carter Goodrich's career as an award winning freelance illustrator began in 1983, when he shared studio space with longtime friend and fellow illustrator, Buck Lewis, in New York City. His book and editorial work eventually led to the publication of sixteen New Yorker covers, and counting. Carter's first role in film work came as lead character designer for DreamWorks' first feature animated film, "Prince of Egypt", in 1995. He then went on to work on such films as "Finding Nemo", "Monsters Inc.", "Shrek", "Spirit", "Sinbad", "Open Season", on which he worked as art director/character design, and "Despicable Me" as lead character designer. His work on these films resulted in four ASIFA Annie Award nominations for best character design in a feature animated film. In 2007 his designs for Pixar's "Ratatouille" finally brought home the Annie. In addition to his earlier illustrated books, "Nutcracker" (1987) and "A Christmas Carol" (1997), Carter has written and illustrated "A Creature Was Stirring" (2006 Simon & Schuster pub.), "The Hermit Crab" (2009 Simon & Schuster pub., a Junior Library Guild Selection), and most recently "Say Hello to Zorro" (2011 Simon & Schuster pub.); the first of an ongoing series of stories that feature the two dogs, Zorro and Mister Bud.

Carter lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
