about & contact
Hello and welcome!
My name is Janneke As, a 2D Animator and Illustrator from the Netherlands.
In the beginning of 2021 I graduated from HKU, University of the Arts Utrecht in Animation, with a Bachelor of Design.
I love making cute and colorful character-focused work, either animated or illustrated, digital or traditional!
I am currently looking for work as a 2D character animator or clean-up artist, but feel free to contact me about any position or project 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 would love to learn more!
