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

I am a professional illustrator and character designer based in the United Kingdom with 14+ years experience working between games, animation and illustration. My specialties are story driven and 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: kenny@charactercube.com

I take your data privacy seriously. Please read my privacy notice for more information on how I may collect and store your data.
