Digital Illustrator - Kimberly Larmond

"My name is Kimberly Larmond, a graphic designer and illustrator based in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. I have been mulling around the idea of creating animated shorts for quite some time now. However, I have been a bit reluctant to undertake this task in After Effects, as it seems monumental. I stumbled across CrazyTalk Animator 3, and I was flabbergasted!"
