This week I pay props to one of my oldest and dearest friends, Negin Bairami. Negin worked as Senior Texture Painter on Tree of Life and is an amazing and gifted artist all around. I actually met Negin in high school art class back when we were both sixteen. We both wound up working in VFX and have been friends for more than twenty five years. Negin's work can also be seen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2 and in the upcoming films Gravity and Rise of the Guardians.
