Hey guys! I’m a senior in Animation Major with a Fine Art Minor. I come from a small town called Sherrard in Illinois where only corn fields can be seen surrounding our town for miles on end. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be the person who make characters come to life, and after 4 years of practice, I’m proud to say I finally can. When I’m not hanging out with my friends I spend my time creating digital pieces and animated shortsthat help push me as an artist. I try to challenge myself each day artistically by learning new techniques and animating difficult movements. I use Instagram as a platform to show my progression as an artist and a person. You can see my progress on my Instagram @_koibo.ilivin_ where I post pieces that show my progress as an animator/artist.
