About Me

I am an Animation major with the goal to one day work on preproduction for movies and cartoons dedicated to younger audiences. I would like to work at a studio like Cartoon Network or Disney doing character designs, storyboards, animatics, and animations. Outside of school I spend a lot of time either drawing, both digital and traditional, and spending time with my Fiancé and twin one year old daughters who are my world and my motivation to follow my dreams. I like to participate in monthly drawing challenges, and have created my own characters, stories, and worlds while doing so. I also like to research and do drawing exercises and studies to improve both my traditional and digital art. I use mostly Facebook and Instagram to share my work and to find other artists who inspire me to create pieces that emphasize my character and what I wish to accomplish with my art: which is to inspire others who started out like I did, as a child with just a pencil and some paper, and to follow your dreams wherever they may take you. All of my art is posted on my Instagram & Facebook under the name WolpE Arts.
