Hey there, I'm Declan Walsh. I've been working in the animation industry for 25 years, and in that time I've amassed a wealth of experience working on classic movies, games, and various other projects. 

However, here's the thing... I'm still learning! In this industry, learning never stops. My latest escapade brings me to Cartoon Animator (CTA), where I got to collaborate with Reallusion to showcase its features. The thing I absolutely adore about CTA is its inclusive approach that embraces artists of all skill levels. It allows me to keep honing my traditional animation skills, even in the face of the latest industry advancements. And let me tell you, their community is incredibly supportive – just like any top-notch animation studio!
