Hi! My name is Andrea and I'm a LatinX storyboard artist!

 

If I had to describe myself I'd say I'm an introverted nerd with an undying love for comedy and storytelling; but above everything else, I'm an artist (hence the reason for me pursuing a career in animation).

I’m also a feminist, a believer in the importance of mental health, and someone who likes to try new things! Recently, I've tried woodworking and aerial skills classes; and in the near future, I would like to try wood carving, as I’d love to make mini figurines of myself and my two cats.

I’m a firm believer that animation has the potential to normalize things like accepting people from different cultures, sexual identities, sexual orientations, and more. I’m sure if children grow up seeing all of these groups as normal, there will be less hate in the future, and I would love to be involved in creating that positive change.

In my spare time, I like to make comics about my life as an introvert. But outside of art, I enjoy watching movies, playing video games, having game nights with friends, and spending time with my cats.

I'd love to work with you on your next project!

I'm available for full-time or freelance Storyboarding and Story Revisions. If you'd like to contact me for work (or just say hi!) please shoot me an email: andrea.mercado.art@gmail.com
