Visual development artist Chrystin Garland works in the animation industry. She started in comics out of The Savannah College of Art and Design and also spent time designing flash games to help children build social-emotional skills, before finally working her way across to the world of TV animation.

As part of our Day in the Life series, ImagineFX spoke to Chrystin about her daily creative process, finding balance in her work and how she unwinds after a long day.
