KINGSBOROUGH COMMUNITY COLLEGE —
Thomas Eaton: The Man Behind the Drawing Board
With crystal blue eyes and a smile that belongs in a Colgate commercial, Thomas Eaton doesn’t fit the animator stereotype. But make no mistake, bringing art to life is indeed, his life’s work.
Eaton teaches animation in the KBCC art department. He has done a range of short films, comic book strips, and band music video covers. He published his first comic book titled “The Bug Zapper” last year and is currently working on the next chapter.
