My name is Mariana M. I am very excited to have found this website and am very eager to help mold some of out future artists. My objective is to tutor the youth of today with the knowledge and love that I have for art
. I am seeking the opportunities to work as an illustrator
/animator while continually challenging my artistic abilities.
Academically, I completed my undergrad career at Columbia College Chicago with a concentration in Traditional Animation back in 2009. While I was there, I was taught several skills, programs, techniques... all of which have helped me tremendously in my professional career. These programs include: Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop
, Edge Animate, In-Design), Sony Vegas Platinum, Toon Boom Opus, Amadeus Pro, Audacity, iMovie, iDVD, Sencha Animator, Tumult Hype, as well as Sketchbook Pro.
I have a very positive and professional attitude, excellent written and verbal communication skills (fluent in Portuguese
and some Spanish
as well). Also, I do have an extensive fine arts background with graphic arts expertise with the ability to learn new programs effectively and efficiently.
Work wise, I am currently an Animator/Illustrator/Creative Lead with a children's eBook company, based out of Austin, called Chungaboo. I've helped in the illustrations and animations of several apps that have been created as well as an eBook (in the works of the second). I also am working as an associate with JC Penney corporate office, in Plano, as an Animator/Motion Artist. There I've helped in the creation of banners, transitions, animated welcome pages, and emails. To top it off, I still make time to work doing freelance on the side. My freelance jobs so far have mostly been illustrations with animation mixed in.
Thank you all for your time and consideration. I hope to hear from you soon!
