Hello! I'm Jessica, an illustrator, colorist and character designer from Montreal Canada! I specialize in imagery for children, but I also do coloration for animation layouts and mascot design. I have worked for animation, gaming, media and publishing companies as a freelancer for 4 years now and hopefully more to come. I studied at cegep du Vieux-Montreal, where I completed my first animated short "Uno". I love animation but while studying i realized i preferred illustrating and decided to go down that path instead. I'm also part of an emerging publishing company called 'MachineMachine', that makes illustration and comic collectives. I also work on, an online store that sells original goods as well as a group that starts artistic initiatives in Montreal.
