My name is Tom Lavery and I've been working as a 2D Character animator for the better part of 3 3 years now.
I'm a Masters graduate of Teesside university in 3D Character Animation currently working as a freelancer in the UK but with a visa to work abroad in Canada.
It has been my dream to be an animator since I was a child watching cartoons on Nick, Cartoon Network and Disney, and I consider it my greatest passion in life.
My driving aspiration is to one day be able to start up a studio producing my own shows. But before that, i would much rather have more years of industry experience behind with other talented artists to learn from. until then I will continue to work on my animations and personal projects, all the work for which you can see here.
Outside of animation, my bigger hobbies are board games, (with one of my own in the works,) and training to perform as a Pro wrestler. (yes, the fake type.)
I am currently freelancing at Arcus Animation Studios, working with them on projects for clients like BBC Bitesize as well as assisting with their own IP development.
Please feel free to contact me concerning any inquiries.
