Hello! I'm Lexi Vay, an animator, illustrator, and visual development artist!
I recently worked at Hallmark eCards designing and animating short-form animated content. From storyboard to soundmix, I enjoy working with all parts of the animation pipeline and I experiment with many different styles of animation (traditional, rigged puppet, motion graphics) and combinations of mediums (digital/traditional art, live action, miniature) to create unique and interesting pieces. Additionally, I have experience in graphic design, modeling and texturing 3D assets, compositing and editing, and crafting miniatures.
I also illustrated the children’s book Dorje the Yak, which won a first place Purple Dragonfly Book Award for Best Children’s Picture Book in 2019.
I previously worked at Disney Interactive on various MMOs such as Pixie Hollow and Club Penguin, painting concept art and making 3D assets for the games.
In my free time I usually enjoy sketching, mostly in pen, and I’m really into fountain pens ! I also enjoy playing videogames, watching anime, reading comics, and doing various crafting projects I pick up and drop— I’ve done knitting and crocheting, making (many different styles of) books, building gundams, weaving paracord bracelets and lanyards, sewing clothes, baking, and at times building Swedish furniture.
