Hi there! My name is Veronica Dolcich and I'm an artist and animator currently enrolled at Exceptional Minds in Sherman Oaks, CA. I'm also a 2018 BFA graduate from the Maryland Institute College of Art.
Since 2016 I have freelanced for some small independent projects and even finished a mentorship program with Cartoon Network last year! I specialize in Character Design, Storyboarding, and 2D Animation, and strive for a position in the animation industry. Being on the autism spectrum, I want to explore topics that promote inclusiveness while also being enjoyable for everyone.
My inspirations include (but are not limited to) Al Hirschfeld, David Christiana, Tomm Moore, Yugo Limbo, and Richard Williams.
