  1. I am a Canadian animator currently working as a storyboard artist in Vancouver, on “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.” My contract ends on the 24th of August, after which I could relocate to Hamilton. I got my start in the industry doing animation and I would like to get back to that.

    See my resume and portfolio at (where you can also read my ongoing webcomic, which I periodically print and sell at festivals.) Email me at with any questions. Thank you! 🙂

    • Hey Anna,
      Please contact the individual job poster at the contact info listed in the post itself, the likelihood of them seeing your note here is pretty slim.


Cartoon Awesome!
