About David & ArtyPassion

David Thomas

My name is David Thomas, I’m a Welsh animator and have been working professionally in Feature Film Character Animation for most of my career in France. In my day-to-day job, I animate characters bouncing around the screen. Companies I’ve worked for include Illumination Mac Guff, Mikros Image, Mac Guff Ligne, Jungler and Fortiche Productions. Some of the projects you’ll see my name in the credits for are Arcane: League Of Legends (the Netflix series), The Secret Life Of Pets, Sherlock Gnomes, Sam Sam, as well as a few others (my IMDB is here). If you want to read more about how I came to be an animator, I wrote about that a bit more in this article on how to become an animator.

This is my most recent animation reel:

I’ve also worked in graphic design and did a graphic communication / illustration degree. Music is another of my passions and I’ve dabbled in writing fiction. I like doing arty stuff. Too much arty stuff. So much arty stuff that I can’t do anything with half of it. That’s where this website comes in.

The reason this website exists is because in my professional life I am a specialist in animation and I wanted somewhere to experiment with all of the other artistic things that interest me. Rather than just an artist’s portfolio, I hope this website can be a resource for those who are interested in the same things I am. I’ll be sharing my work here but also writing reviews about art materials, tutorials and articles on art.

Who is this website for?

This website is for anybody who likes arty stuff. If you like arty stuff, you’ll probably like this website. If you like animation, you’ll like this website even more.

Can I use your art?
