Leo de Wijs

ART DIRECTOR, PRODUCTION DESIGNER, CONCEPT ARTIST & ILLUSTRATOR

SHORT SUMMARY

I'm a visual artist specialised in visual development and art direction for animation productions. But I have a hunger to all kinds of creative challenges, like designing visual identities, illustrating children picture books, make water color paintings , sculpt, design stained glass windows and visualise all kinds of spaces.

I graduated with a master of Arts and Design at the HKU in the Netherlands in 2007 and am freelance since 2008. I happily live and work in Amsterdam and work as an independent art director and production designer for many animation productions studios in the Netherlands and abroad. 

Also I find it important to share knowledge about my craft to colleagues and students. I try to write regular blogposts and give guest lectures about animation design and world building. Feel free to contact me either of these things.
