Depending on your area of focus, your answer could go as far back as the earliest animators (Walt Disney, Dr. Seuss, Chuck Jones). If your career is in gaming, online content, video, movies, etc., additional knowledge of the industry-specific mavericks will be good for you to know.
"I admire Dr. Seuss the most because his work in animation has been timeless. You know a great animator when even those outside of the industry can instantly recognize and name the work. I aspire to be this timeless one day."
"I have learned a great deal about Chuck Jones while attending university. Although his name is not as well known, his work is timeless and will be with us forever. His work with Warner Bros. Cartoons will always be taught in universities. He directed classics like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck- all work that I know even my kids will enjoy one day."
"I most admire Walt Disney. His story is incredibly encouraging, and I look to his classic work for inspiration on a regular basis. I especially appreciate that he did not limit himself only as an animator. He also thrived as an entrepreneur, producer, and voice actor."
