Norm Konyu was born in Canada, but please don’t hold that against him.
He attended the Sheridan College Animation course way back in the day, and has since worked in Germany, Vancouver, and London for whoever will stoop so low as to hire him.
He now lives in the UK, where he has adopted the mooseboy persona as a defense mechanism, and ekes out a living peddling animation door to door.
Norm specialises in 2D animation and design, primarily using Adobe Animate, Illustrator, and Photoshop (and an old fashioned pencil from time to time) for TV series, commercials, and online media.
