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, funded by Patreon and Tapas. 

I love working with characters and character driven stories. I enjoy exploring ways to create strong emotional moments that engage with audiences.

Aside from animation and comics I also have an interest in house plants, pottery and video games. My current favourite game is Hades.

I am experienced with Adobe Animate, Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, InDesign, Procreate iPad, Clip Paint Studio, Paint Tool Sai, Wacom Cintiq, Rough Animator, Sketch Up.
