Jim Tews animates.
I started as an amusement park caricature artist, left my hometown to spend four years in the military, then pursued my interests in visual storytelling through film school at Cleveland State. I relocated to New York and built up my skill set by working in various production roles that required a little bit of everything: writing, storyboarding, editing, motion graphics, animation, etc.
In the last five years, as software has made animation more accessible (and a little less tedious) I’ve been able to put it all together to create short-form animated content from the ground up. Sometimes for myself, sometimes for clients.
I’ve been writing and performing standup for years, and love finding ways to turn that into animated content.
