david gainey animation

I am a character animator with experience in feature animation, visual effects and video games. While the bulk of my professional work has been in computer graphics, my personal style is more handmade, hand drawn, and traditional in process.

Telling stories is what I am passionate about, and that’s why I love animation. It combines so many storytelling elements: writing, illustration, design, music, sound, acting and directing. I am most at home when I am practicing all of these different disciplines, producing something that people have never seen before, and making art that inspires.

I live in Redwood City, California with my wife and two amazing kids.
