About Me

Hello, my name is Anna Shackley and I am a senior animation major at Bradley University. When it comes to my artistic skills, I thoroughly enjoy coming up with concepts and designs. I would love to one day work professionally as a concept artist or storyboarder as they are two aspects of production I really enjoy doing. Digital art is what I have mainly been working with while studying at my university, my favorite and most appreciated programs are photoshop and illustrator. In addition, I also possess a lot of skill in more traditional art mediums my favorite tool being your standard ballpoint pen. Currently, I am in development for my senior film which will hopefully be presented at next years Fuse event. I have been working hard to create something unabashedly my style and unique. You can find my production blog for the film listed below as a tumblr link. Lastly, I was lucky enough to be selected as the branding lead for this year’s Fuse event, so many of the t-shirt designs, and even the logo I had a large part in designing and creating. As such, I hope everyone enjoys the this year's Fuse!
