Welcome to StylusRumble.com
I'm Tracy strong. a draftsman, animation generalist, and educator, specializing in ToonBoom Harmony since 2007.
I’ve worked in just about all the production departments using Harmony and Photoshop
Character and prop design
background design and layout
2DFx and comp
But, that’s not all, In recent years I’ve also found joy in teaching, training teams in house and internationally, planning and conducting webinars for Toon Boom, and heading an 8 week boot camp to prepare animators leaving college to work at a production level.
The diversity of my experience has helped me hone my communication skills. I often served as a translator between the fanciful language of idea-people, show runners, directors, producers and converted their ideas into art or actionable steps. As well as explaining complex problems to junior artists in a straightforward and encouraging manner.
Are you trying to build a pitch, test, or pilot, and you need a lot of art fast to pass to your board artists or the design team you can’t spare?
That’s where I thrive. Not only am I fast, but I can save time and money by starting the design process with production problems in mind. I can take existing material and analyze the design language and animation timing of a show to create a style guide or create a 2DFX blueprint that is tailored to the production
I’m a type-A organizer with a love of animation production. Contact me at Stylusrumble@gmail.com to see if I’m the right fit for your project.
