I've always had an interest in animation and in fact pursued a course of study with the intent of entering the field. That was back in the days when the industry wasn't as booming as it is now, so as circumstance would have it, I took a different career path.
I've done some occasional freelance work doing animation and assistant in-betweening work for a local company which produced mainly commercials and corporate videos. More recently, I've worked on some character design and key poses for an egreeting based on one of my illustrations. Hopefully I'll be adding more to this section in the future.
