Hello everyone,

My name is Thomas Spettel. I professionally work as a 2D Animator and Illustrator. I enjoy drawing a lot either for work or in my spare time as I thoroughly enjoy doodling in my sketchbook.

What I love to create most of all are funny looking cartoon characters and animate funny animations.

I currently do a lot of 2D character animating as well as normal animating using either Flash or Toon Boom Harmony.

I am also quite capable of multitasking various roles in the department of 2D animation such as creating storyboards, animatics, character designs, and Backgrounds.

Additionally, I have been handling some Animation Directing and Management over at KING BEE Studios, providing a friendly atmosphere to the studio when we get new animators and/or Interns.

Do check out the various links to my other sites to view more of my artworks and I hope you enjoy what you're looking at.
