Character Designer // CTN eXpo
Stephanie Laberis is a character designer and illustrator residing in El Cerrito, CA. Her background is in games but she has been pursuing her dream of working in feature animation during her free(lance) time! She is currently designing for a range of media, including TV animation, video games and recently got back to her roots in toy design. Her clients have included Hasbro, Sony, Microsoft, PBS Kids, American Greetings and various iOS startups in the Bay Area. She also participates in gallery shows and self publishes an annual art book of her 2D work.
When not drawing or playing video games, she spends time playing with her pet rats and needle felting critters, often in the likeness of her vermin muses. She is working to integrate her character design sense into her felted work, creating shape-driven stop motion puppets and gallery pieces.
