About

Hey, I’m Jeca Martinez! I’m an award-winning freelance animator and illustrator for creative companies looking to add a touch of unicorn rainbow happiness to their projects.

I love to tell stories and entertain people through animation, and I take pride in every project that I work on (seriously, I cannot bear to release something to the world that I’m not absolutely happy with!). You deserve somebody who you can entrust your vision with and I’m here for that.

Some of the clients I’ve worked with include Hallmark eCards, Otataa, Facebook, Adaptive Studios, The Philippine Daily Inquirer, and Vibal Publishing.

My work is not just pretty pictures for the sake of it. I will truly take the time to come up with the perfect creative solution for you, and in the end you will get a custom, beautiful, professional-quality work that is designed for your needs, audience, and platform. That means that no one else in the world will have the exact same project that we will make together.

Through my joyful, colorful art and content, I hope to inspire others to take on a passionate, relentless lifestyle in pursuit of their creative dreams.

Interested in working with me, or just want to say hi? Send me a message using this contact form, or email me at hello(at)jecamartinez(dot)com!
