HELLO!

    Nice to meet you! My name is Laurel Chen.

    I'm an animator + illustrator, and I've worked full-time in the animation industry since 2011.

    WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

    Animation

    • Experienced in creating animations for various platforms (broadcast, digital, web, social) and various styles (from children's cartoons to corporate videos). 
    • Specializing in full-service production, from concept to delivery. (Here's an overview of my process, for example.)

    Illustration + Design

    • Experienced in creating illustrations for video, print, and web. 
    • Experienced in storyboarding for animation and live action productions. 
    • While I love the hand-drawn look, I enjoy exploring different styles and always appreciate the chance to try something new. 

    who i am

    • I'm a New Yorker who's also lived in China and Australia for several years apiece. 
    • I got my B.A. as a double major in art & English from Amherst College. 
    • I'm also fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and Spanish... and I've been learning Russian and Portuguese for fun. 
    • I like running through the woods, dissecting films + books, new culinary experiences, and fattening up my travel sketchbook
    • So far, I've adventured through London, Hungary, Sweden, Denmark, Bulgaria, Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, Australia (from the Great Barrier Reef down to Penguin, Tasmania), New Zealand, Fiji, Hong Kong, Macau, and different regions in China.
