Hello! I’m Tristin cole

Animator, Author, Illustrator

As a second generation animation artist, I grew up watching my father, Ronald Roesch, paint backgrounds for Hanna-Barbera. I have a passion for animation and enjoy bringing the traditional values and techniques I have learned from my mentors to modern day background painting and designs.

After 25 years of dedication in the animation industry, I’ve worked as a background painter and designer for some of the top Hollywood animation studios, including Warner Brothers.

In addition to the opportunity to serve the animation community, I am a Children’s Book Author and Illustrator. My book titles include “Into the Night”, “Bodhi and the Coyote”, “A Bundle of Joey”, “The Humble Bee”, and “The Secret Rocket” written by Sonia Sander.
