My name is Kale de Wild and I'm an artist based in Auckland, New Zealand, working in animation. I studied at Animation College NZ, graduating with a Diploma in Applied Animation 2D, with Excellence and Diploma in Digital Media.
I currently work as a 2D character rigger, prop designer and animator at Mukpuddy. Along side animation, I am currently producing my on-going webcomic series Griefer Belt.
I love to work on character driven stories, and enjoy exploring ways to create memorable moments that will engage with audiences.
Aside from animation and comics I also have an interest in cowboys, pottery, rock climbing and video games.
