Meet Tom Shek, our Character Animator and all-around fuego badass.
What was your proudest achievement in the past year?
This past year being hired at Aardman Nathan Love was my proudest achievement. It was such a surreal moment when I was given the opportunity to become staff and so many thoughts were going through my mind. Obviously, it was an offer I couldn’t refuse.
Professionally and personally, what are your goals for 2016?
“2014 was practice. 2015 was warm-up. 2016 is game time.” I’ve been seeing this message a lot on social media and my goal is to give it my best everyday and to teach myself to be more patient.
Outside of animation and design, what other hobbies are you passionate about?
I really like to exercise and eat ice cream.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
To not regret anything.
How do you get into the creative mood?
Go on soundcloud and listen to my playlists or draw on the whiteboard that we have at the office.
