My name is Colin Hesterly, a Tiki Drinkie loving, Jungle Cruise vibing California native, working as a Director and Artist within the animation industry.  

With a uniquely keen view of the world around me, inspired by a sense of wonder and nostalgia, I began my career as a freelance artist for a variety of companies and brands around the globe. My success as a storyteller led me to produce five animated short films that each garnered a Vimeo Staff Pick. 

My creative process focuses on 2D Animation and the art of character driven narrative. With work spanning across a broad range of creative fields, from TV to Film Titles, Short Films, and Commercials. In 2014, I was inducted into the ADC Young Guns as one of the top 30 Artist Under 30. 

Well, if you've gotten this far then, you deserve a high-five and a delicious pink sprinkle doughnut. But first, let's work together. Check out the links below.

Let's Party together!


I am always looking to meet new people so send a friendly hello!
