I'm Luis Gadea

I’m a Character Designer and 2D Animator born in Canada and raised in Costa Rica (tiny small country in Central America). Now based in Los Angeles, California.

Yes! I speak English with a sexy accent.

I’ve been working in the Animation industry since 2008 on animated commercials, TV series and animated Feature films. I've worked with clients like Warner Bros Animation, Illumination, Netflix, Dreamworks TV, Animal Logic and Atomic Cartoons.

I spend most of my days drawing for my own happiness and finding different ways to accomplish a look on my art. If you give me a cup of coffee, paper and pencils I can be in a corner quietly without disturbing your party.

Oh! I also use preschool art supplies to challenge myself not to get used to a computer screen.

¡Pura vida!
