    Illustrator & Animation Director Alex Kiesling Discusses The Rocky Road to Full-time Freelance and Working With Big Brands

    Alex Kiesling is an illustrator and animation director currently based in Brooklyn, New York. I don't remember exactly how I came across Alex's profile but I have been following him for some time now and have enjoyed seeing his work pop up in my feed. To kickoff season 4, Alex and I discussed what it was like after graduating from school with only $600 in his bank account. Alex also discusses how even though his first internship was not the most fun, it made a huge impact on his style and process today.
