Hello, my name is Lisa Vertudaches.

I'm an independent illustrator & animator, working from a freelance creative studio in Adelaide, South Australia.

I have worked on a variety of projects including The Beards 'Got Me a Beard' music video, 'Gifts for Everyone' for the Australian Red Cross and 'The Robertson Effect' for Comedy Central.

My first experience with animation was when I was about 12, and my mum loaned a game from the library for our family PC, called 'the games factory.' I'd sit there all day and animate these little characters, pixel by pixel. They started off pretty cute, but then I'd always animate them doing something dumb, or dying in some obscure or ridiculous way. Back then I didn't really know animation was a career, and I think I wanted to be a vet or marine biologist.

It wasn't until about second year at University that I realised animation was what I really wanted to do, after undertaking an animation elective. I then focused all my projects on animation, several were shortlisted for the AgIdeas Newstar awards, and the QANTAS Spirit of Youth Award.

I really like The Simpsons early stuff. I'm pretty sure that's where I developed my sense of humour, so if you like The Simpsons, I'm sure we'll get along great. I have a passion for travel, and seeing new places. I would love to combine work with travel.

Now that you know a bit about me, I'd love to hear from you. I'm always happy to talk about projects, potential collaborations, or just chat about ideas.
