Hi and welcome to Character Cube, online home of Kenneth Anderson!


I am a professional character designer and illustrator based in the United Kingdom with 14+ years experience working between games, animation and illustration. My specialties are story driven character based illustration and character design for a variety of mediums, in particular childrens television development.


I have a background in traditional 2D animation having worked on Sylvain Chomet's Oscar nominated film "The Illusionist" (2010) as an inbetweener followed by animating on the French feature, "Titeuf: Le film" (2011).


In 2009 I started my business Character Cube with the aim of becoming a freelance character designer and illustrator. I have since worked with numerous companies around the world such as Nick Jr, Seasame Workshop, BBC Ceebeebies, Brown Bag Films, ImagineFX and others on a wide variety of projects.


If you are interested in bespoke character design for your project or need a fun and lively illustration please email me here:
