My name is Kale de Wild and I'm an artist based in Aotearoa!
I work in animation, specializing in 2D character design, prop design and rigging. I'm currently working at Mukpuddy. Along side animation, I do illustration, comics and product design.
I love to work on character driven stories, and enjoy exploring ways to create memorable moments that will engage with audiences. My personal work is influenced by LGBTQIA+ experiences and I enjoy bringing these themes into my stories.
I studied at Animation College NZ, graduating with a Diploma in Applied Animation 2D, with Excellence and Diploma in Digital Media.
Outside of work I have an interest in pottery, rock climbing and video games.
