If you don't know what company Pixar is than you are surly missing out. I went on a mission to find inspiration for my final and Pixar ended up being the animation that gave me the idea I wanted. Gina is an animator for Pixar and worked on the movies Finding Nemo and the Incredibles. I read over the interview that she had on the Pixar website and she had some interesting things to say. She talked about how she gets started on a project, what her day consists of, and various other things.
This is some of Gina's Art Work:

Glennda Field is an artist who I found browsing watercolor art in the Portland area. Although she resides in Corbett Oregon she is an award winning artist and belongs to OSA, Oregon Society of Artists. Her paintings vary from figures and faces to animals, flowers and landscapes. I am a big fan of using watercolors, it was the first medium I was introduced to and I know how hard it can be to work with. I commend the use of color and space in her work as well as making it look so easy! She does not just work in watercolors she also works in other mediums as well, like acrylics.
Milton Glaser is a graphic Designer who is very well known for his 'I love New York' Logo. Since I am considering entering parts or all of this field I find this artist very inspirational and interesting. His use of color is fun but not distracting.

I am thinking about doing a man and his dog playing fetch. Simple yet complicated in its entirety.
I want to make a man and his god walk into the screen and find a ball. Then I want to have the man pick up the ball and look at it. He's then going to throw the ball and the dog is going to run after it. The owner of the dog will still be holding onto the dogs leash and will get pulled behind him.

Flying Rhino is an animation studio that I was able to tour as a young adult. This is a place where they distribute educational children's books, interactive programming, classroom materials, software, and websites. All of there products are animated with different characters to encourage children to learn while being fun, entertaining and educational.
