I'm Collin Leix!
(pronounced ‘likes’)
I'm an animator and illustrator in Michigan. I’ve had a winding road of working in oil painting, design, classical violin, and language. But it all led me to animation.

It's the most calorie-dense medium of expression I've found, and brings together so many things I love:  Sound, gesture, color, place, narrative, story...  Animation holds such potential to evoke feeling, whether I'm watching it or making it.  It’s pretty much the best.

Since getting my MFA at the University of Michigan, studying Motion Media at SCAD, and studying language and Art History at Miami University of Ohio and the Tyler school of art in Rome, I now am lucky enough to work in Detroit, MI at the lovely studio Gunner.
