Leo Antolini.jpg

Hello! My name is Leo Antolini and I am an illustrator, designer and director. I grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, then moved to San Francisco, California, where I graduated with a BFA in Animation – Visual Development/Character Design from the Academy of Art University.

After graduating, I worked at various animation studios as designer, storyboard artist and director. I eventually became a freelance artist, and I've been at it ever since, working for publishers, studios and independent clients from all over the world.

I've been drawing and inventing characters for as long as I can remember, and I've always loved educational projects (I actually created a non-fiction book about cats when I was 6!). I still have a huge passion for them, and in the past few years I've been indulging my teaching side by doing several workshops with children of all ages.

I currently live in sunny Barcelona with my amazing wife, Andrea.
