Malcolm is rarely seen without a pencil or paint brush in hand. He is well-known for is incredible attention to the smallest of details as well as his truly brilliant eye for color. Malcolm loves every art medium that he is able to get his hands on in The One Step Beyond Art Studio. He uses them all to create truly stunning works of art, animals being his favored subject. Malcolm has had his work featured at Art One Gallery in Scottsdale, Avondale Culture Pop Festival and currently has pieces on display at Sunsational Coffee in Surprise. He will be featured in the Artist Alley at One Step Beyond’s booth at Phoenix Fan Fusion in May 2019.

Rhett’s artwork can’t be mistaken. He is a popular artist around the halls of One Step Beyond, everyone knows his style and connects to his cartoon-style versions, often of themselves. Rhett loves to draw his peers and staff as characters in his artwork. It is a unique experience to be able to watch him work, the speed and accuracy at which he creates is overwhelming, he is like a machine! He has an intense passion for sculpting too, his cartoon characters often show up in his ceramics, they are just as cool, but in 3D! Some of his favorite characters are Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario, Mega Man and of course people boxing. In this image, Rhett has placed himself as The Boxer, he often creates self-portraits. Sometimes he will include himself with others that he knows, whether it be an already existing character, or possibly one of his friends.

Elizabeth discovered her love of the arts just two years ago after becoming a wonderful addition to the One Step Beyond Art Studio. Elizabeth’s favorite thing about art? “Well…Everything! I love to challenge myself and keep trying new things in art” Elizabeth would like to show her love of art to the world in hopes that others will enjoy her work as much as she enjoys making it. Elizabeth has truly blossomed in such a short amount of time already having her work shown at Avondale Culture Pop Festival last year. Her work will also be featured in the Artist Alley at One Step Beyond’s booth at Phoenix Fan Fusion in May 2019.

“Art is the most fun!” It is exactly this fantastic energy that translates into all the artwork that Marcel creates. While clay is Marcel’s favorite medium to use in One Step Beyond’s Art Studio, it is his playful portraits of his favorite animators surrounded by their beloved characters that he is so well known for. Marcel’s work has been displayed Art One’s Gallery in Scottsdale as well as last year’s Avondale Culture Pop Festival. Marcel will have his work featured at Wham Gallery in Surprise in August of 2019.

Anthony has been an important part of the Art Program at One Step Beyond for many years. He is a very talented artist as well as author and screenwriter. Most of the characters that he draws and creates are characters in his writings. Anthony specifies that “this character is part of a script in a movie that I ‘am writing inspired by the movie Wreck It Ralph about a cartoon sidekick”. One of Anthony’s many skill sets is to be able to recreate images that he sees on screen. He also loves to come up with his own images, characters, and designs as well. This is one of his original character designs who he has big plans for…stay tuned!
