BFA - Visual Development
Hey there! I’m Justyne and to say a little about me, I’m originally from Colorado, but I’m currently in San Francisco studying at the Academy of Art University and will graduate Dec of 2023. I grew up riding horses and around animals, this has lead into my passion for drawing them of course. I have a cat aka a fluffy son named Sully, short for Sullivan.
I have nearly 3 years of professional experience working with indie studios and student films, most notably SpindleHorse Toon’s Helluva Boss. Helluva Boss recently won Best Animation for the Streamy Awards for YouTube. I’ve freelanced for them doing background layout and painting since 2020.
I’ve also worked with Apeship Studios, a 2D indie animation studio based in San Francisco/Puerto Rico to create the backgrounds for a short children’s music video on YouTube.
I’ve also worked on projects with Studio X, a studio from ArtU as an art director on a stop-motion animated music video. I’ve also volunteered some of my time for doing layouts for a SCAD student film: Beasts and Banter.
