about & contact

Welcome to my portfolio!

My name is Janneke As, a Dutch 23-year-old and 2D Animation graduate from HKU, University of the Arts, Utrecht.
I love making cute and colorful character-focused work, either animated or illustrated.
In my free time I like watching the occasional cartoon or anime, playing Breath of The Wild or chilling with my cats while drinking tea.

I am currently looking for work in the creative industry.
Preferably as a character animator or clean-up artist, but I'm open to anything where my work could add value!

My dream is to combine working in a studio with amazing creatives and creating and selling my own work and products online.

The software I'm currently used to working with are:
Tvpaint Animation - Premiere - Photoshop - After Effects
...and I'm open to learning more!
