My name is Amanda Estes and I’m orginally from a small town by the name of Greenville OH, but i currently living in Columbus, attending at Columbus College of Art and Design(CCAD). I’m 20 years old and loves to watch a lot of comedy films and animation films. I am an Animation Major and a Fine Arts minor, i enjoy the outdoors, and i absolutly love to draw, I have been drawing my whole life. I blame my mother because she is an art teacher but she did get me into the arts so i thank her for that. My family is a huge animal lover, you could say our house is like a zoo. Many different kinds of pets we have, such as a piranha but i will stop there. I like to incorporate real life experiences into most of my drawings and maybe someday, my animations. One of my reasons why i want to be in animation because, just knowing that fact you have the ability to transform your imagination into a 3D world on a computer program, i really think that is cool. I’ve always loved watching animation films when i was young, so ever since then, i wanted to do cartooning/animation. I actually have made a few cartoon Characters already and i plan to take them to the next step and create a short animation film with them when i get enough experience in the animation world. I really like to use comedy because it makes people smile and i absolutly love making them smile, I get the feeling that i have accomplished my goal. I’m leaning towards children comedy, although adult comedy is really funny but a childs laughter makes you feel good about yourself .
