I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. My old school books are full of cartoon characters and comics. Many pencils were wasted in the process.
Later on I also became interested in video games, how they were designed and developed.
After high school graduation in 2002, I decided to study Mediatechnology at the Hogeschool Utrecht. Throughout the years, I learned a great deal about multimedia, 2D and 3D graphic design, web design, programming and art history. I came to the conclusion that illustration and animation was the way to go. I bought a pen tablet and started exploring the world of digital painting.
After a great internship at animation studio Spunky Productions, I graduated in 2007.
In 2009 I decided to officially become a freelance animator and illustrator, under the name 'Colin Cramm Illustration & Animation'.
