A kid at Heart
Jessica Conn is originally from the frozen frontier of Anchorage, Alaska. Displeased with the cold outdoors, Jessica found solace in indoor activities, like watching cartoons on TV. Born in the mid 90’s Jessica got to experience arguably some of the wildest and wackiest cartoons of our time, which inspired her to spend all of her free time drawing and creating, whether it be a fully realized piece or a napkin doodle, which is something she still does every day. As she furthered her ability to draw as well as write, these cartoons became comics and storyboards. This led her to eventually want to pursue a career in concept art and storyboarding.
She currently has been interning in TV development at Mar Vista Entertainment and Echo Lake Entertainment and is now working as a concept artist intern at Aaron Sims Creative. (As well as sending anime girls into space #Nosauce).
Her goal is to one day work for an animation studio and tell her personal story, as well as others’ stories through animated art. Her inspirations are Magical Girl anime, 90’s cartoon network and nickelodeon shows, and Golden Age Disney movies. Despite loving cartoons and cute things, she can run a full size steamroller (So watch out 😉).
