Keelan Rodgers

Animation Senior – 2022

My name is Keelan Rodgers. I was born and raised in the city of Chicago and have lived in the city all my life. I am very passionate when it comes to learning how to enhance my skills in art. I have been drawing ever since I was 4 years old. The motivations of family members and friends have led me down the path of wanting to pursue animation with a desire to bring life to my artwork. I now attend Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois as a senior, and I am majoring in Animation with a minor in Studio Art. During my time here at Bradley, I have been able to interact with many individuals through the classes with small sizes and through the job of being a Resident Advisor. I was able to animate drawings for the first time during my first semester and utilize more aspects from Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects. This year, I have had the opportunity to work and multiple internships creating animations and artwork for a brand new audience to view. I look forward to creating more works of art to bring a positive experience to those who are able to see it.
