My name is Lori Schkufza and I'm a 2D animator and casual illustrator. My work is quirky, cute and slightly off beat using mostly flat shapes of color, hints of texture and soft colors. I began my animation career in San Francisco working in gaming for social media and got my first taste of education based animation through working with a lab at UCSF. From there I moved back to New York with a focus on educational content through advertising agencies, non-profits, advocacy organizations and universities. My work often addresses subjects related to women’s issues, and environmental advocacy encouraging better practices. I'm a Creative Mornings/Buffalo volunteer (and past speaker), creating animated content: most popularly- the donut gifs.
I'm a long distance hiker and a huge fan of The X-Files. I spend a lot of time illustrating women featured in pop culture and subjects inspired by nature– most recently 100 illustrations of whales and whale related subjects.
I'm based out of Buffalo, NY.
