Ari Schlanger is a fourteen-year old New York-based artist currently living in the downtown area of Manhattan. Ari is a die-hard geek for Steven Universe, animation, video editing, drawing of any kind, and improvisational theater. Ari considers himself an activist, especially for LGBTQIA+ centered-rights. This is Ari’s third year in a row donating to Chef’s for Kids Cancer. He would like to send a special thank-you to Daniela Ben-Zion for asking him to participate in this incredible show for such a worthy cause. Ari is extremely grateful for his relationship with Cookies for Kids Cancer. In the future, Ari aspires to be a head storyboard artist (or possibly creator, if Ari gets lucky) on an up-and-coming animation show that promotes diversity to younger audiences.
