Studio Mittens is basically the drawing table of me, Tim de Groot.
On this website you’ll find a selection of my animations, concept art and illustrations. My work can best be described as an old handicraft style. There are lot of mixed techniques going on in my work process, using traditional 2D hand drawn, stop-motion, cut-out and digital effects. I do find it hard to take distance from the drawing table, with all my familiar pencils, ink and charcoal. Luckily I don’t have to move myself very far to get into the digital world, using all the new fancy graphic programs like; Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere.
My portfolio shows a lot of free work, from illustrations to developing my own short films. Next to that I like doing commissioned work, which allows me to find new visual methods and the opportunity to communicate on diverse levels to tell a story. If you are interested in working with me, don’t hesitate to contact me!
