Hi, I'm Kirsten
My name is Kirsten Stoner, and I am a freelance illustrator and animator. I specialize in comic illustration, posting on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. I also layout and illustrate children’s books for clients. I graduated from California University Northridge in 2020 with a Bachelor's Degree in Art with a focus on Animation. While in school, I earned a spot on the Dean’s List 7 of my 8 semesters for my exemplary academic performance and graduated Magna Cum Laude. As a result of that hard work, I have animated for Animation Libation Studios, illustrated 2 children’s books, and just recently published a collection of my comics. My professional interest in the animation industry is visual development primarily in background design and painting. While comics and backgrounds are both part of me artistically, I do them for different reasons. Comics allow me to revisit blasé day-to-day events but show them in a way that is entertaining and relatable to others. Environments are intriguing because they take on a personality of their own and show a visual history that can both consciously and subconsciously emphasize the subtext of the story.
