My name is Shannon Jeffires and I am a film Production Designer and Art Director, currently working in the animated feature film industry.
I've focused the bulk of my career in animation for over 25 years, and have worked in various other story based industries my entire ArtCenter afterlife, first as a freelance editorial illustrator, living in NYC, and in recent years, dabbling in the immersive world of VR storytelling.
Having spent so many years focusing my creativity in a story based creative space, I find it very hard now to separate inspiration from story, and infuse narrative in just about every creative endeavor, whether it's illustrating a book, or most recently, building narrative jewelry with small metals and fire.
Story exists everywhere, and in every moment. There's never a shortage of inspiration.
