I'm Tom Van Deusen, a graphic designer, animator and indie cartoonist who lives in Seattle, Washington. I completed my AAS in Graphic Design at the Seattle Creative Academy and previously earned a BFA from the University at Buffalo.
I spent over a decade as an "alternative cartoonist", traveling the country selling comics that were supposed to be funny. When I went back to school for design I was surprised by how well my storytelling skills could be applied to design thinking, storyboarding and visualizing processes and ideas. It also dovetailed nicely into 2D cell animation, which is a new passion.
When I'm not at a computer, I enjoy long-distance running, drawing (for fun), and absolutely destroying my 70 year-old father at Halo on the Xbox I bought him.
