I’m a illustrator and animator as most of my childhood was spent watching cartoons and drawing from them, I have equal love for both fields but beginning to warm towards 2d animation which is also the main area of practice I wish to work in but open to various other art forms.
A lot of my work both illustration and animation is done in adobe Photoshop digitally with a graphics tablet to save time, but always have preferred traditional techniques and try to combine the two.
My original focus was on fine art and illustration work, drawing from life mostly working with still images and exploring art in all its forms, I soon began to sway more towards just illustrating working on narratives, cartoon character designs and quickly warmed to illustration as there were less boundaries and felt more comfortable.
A lot of my animation influences come from the Expressive movements done by specific animators such as Ryo Chimo, Yutaka Nakamura and Norio Matsumoto, inspiring me to get into animation as I would watch Japanese animation series such as ‘noien’, ‘Birdy the Mighty decode’ and others I picked up on their expertise in movement, drag and timing mainly displayed in Japanese animation fight scenes which show a high level of knowledge and I aspire to reach such understanding of movement in animation,
Also Studio Ghibli’s well known ‘Spirited Away’ feature film by Hayao Miyazaki reveled to me the full potential of storytelling through his animation with the use of effective character design, set design, music and a combination of many other factors, the animation connects with the viewer watching drawing you in to the story being told. Character design is also a field of which I am interested in and have a passion for creating characters then to see them come alive in animation Read Less
