Lindy Lou | Hello!
Lindy Lou is a Melbourne-based Animator and Illustrator. She grew up in Singapore, spending much time playing make-believe with her brothers and absorbing a substantial amounts of cartoons and films from the living room TV. She was primarily influenced by western cartoons and came to comics, manga and anime later in her teen years. Lindy began her art education in Singapore at Nanyang Polytechnic (1999-2002) before doing her Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia (2003) and Masters of Creative Media (2011-2012) in RMIT (Melbourne, Australia). She has had good working experience as an illustrator and animator in 2D and 3D animation companies (Eggstory, Viskatoons, Working Dog), as well as experience in assorted freelance jobs.
Lindy employs both traditional and digital mediums in her artwork, and strives to add on new knowledge to her repertoire. She believes that being caring, observant and having a listening ear is crucial in any creative endeavor. She loves a good story and is working to hone her storytelling and character development skills as she makes her way in the animation world.
She enjoys many kinds of tea, all kinds of animals and buying Art Supplies. ~(OmO~)
