About Rick Sweden

Kia Ora. Welcome to my animation portfolio.

My name is Rick Sweden and I’m fortunate enough to say I’m a fishing & snorkeling type of guy from Auckland, New Zealand.

In 2006 I finished a 3 year course studying the old Disney hand drawn animation techniques and graduated with a Diploma in ‘Classical 2D Character Animation’ from  Auckland’s ‘Freelance Animation School’.

Then for the last nearly 20 years I have been working in both the NZ and Australian animation industry.

I’ve have worked with numerous studios producing artwork for nearly 300 animated TV episodes, 3D printed character designs & designed artwork for films, games and documentaries.

I understand that every project is unique so I strive to make my artwork adaptable and innovative. My ultimate aim is to produce high quality work that’s delivered on time and on budget – so we can get another season of the show.    😉

I’m happy to consider any project.

Thanks for stopping by my website – I hope you enjoy the artwork.
