Hi! I’m HerbieCans , 2D / flash / 3D animator and illustrator originally from the Gran Canaria, Spain.
At the moment I work at Cartoon Saloon. I also occasionally work for other animation studios and advertising agencies providing animation, illustration and graphic design. My style is clean, round, mostly vector, funny, surreal, with a asian touch coming from my love for Japan and South korea. You can find me in Yes Land ^__^ The imaginary land where I live surrounded by friendly bizarre creatures.
