Born in USA, Kracov studied at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design and began his career in animation with the Brad Pitt feature, Cool World.
Kracov went on to work with Disney Animation, Don Bluth Animation, Rich Animation, as well as several other studios, working on such features as The Lion King, Aladdin, etc.

During his time as an animator, he began to experiment with different types of clay, and started sculpting the characters from those films he animated.

Ultimately, after his work was discovered at a local art exhibition, he was commissioned to create a limited edition chess set for the Warner Bros. Studio Stores.
Not long after that Kracov was contacted by Disney Studios to create sculptures of individual characters as well as chess sets for their stores, galleries, theme parks and catalog.

Today Kracov is the exclusive licensed sculptor of all Warner Bros. Looney Tunes, Hanna-Barbera, and Tim Burton's Corpse Bride characters, as well as creating limited edition sculptures for the Disney Studios.
