Hello there! My name is Tatiana Kawanishi. Nice to meet you. :)

Since I was a kid, drawing was a way for me to tell all kinds of stories that popped into my head. A crazy character, a mysterious place, or a thrilling fight. encounter. Those drawings were slowly becoming comics that I loved creating when I was a teenager. When I heard about the Animation and Digital Art course at UFMG (Federal University of Minas Gerais), I knew that working in the animation industry would be a blast! I can use my love of visual storytelling to build shorts, feature films, TV Shows?? I’m in!

Spoiler alert: it was a blast! I loved working on so many different projects, from advertisement pieces, feature films, and to TV Shows, being a storyboard artist was and still is an exciting job and I’m looking forward to keeping working on amazing projects!

Some of the projects that I would highlight are:

  • “Te prego lá fora”, Estricnina Desenhos Animados (Brazil). 2D Animation Short film. Paramount +, 2021.

  • “Motherboard”, Espacial Films (Brazil). 2D Animation Feature film. O2 Filmes, 2022.

  • “Badabean”, Birdo Studio (Brazil). 2D Animation TV Show. Discovery Kids, 2022.

  • “Counting with Paula” - Season 04. Omens Studios (Singapore) - 3D Animation TV Show. Omens Studios, 2021. 

I am proficient with software such as Storyboard Pro, Photoshop, ToonBoom Harmony, and always curious to learn new tools.

Feel free to contact me if you think I could contribute to your project!
