Welcome to my Portfolio!
My name is Sean Ziethen and I am an Illustrator and Animator from Germany.
In October 2017 I have finished my Bachelor of Arts for Media Design at the Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg in Ravensburg.
While I was studying I also worked at Oliver Schrott Kommunikation (OSK) in Cologne. At OSK, one of the biggest PR-Agencies in Germany, I was able to work as a Motion Designer on a lot of projects for the car manufacturer Daimler. Including film and animation productions shown in trade shows around the globe (for instance Beijing, Shanghai, Las Vegas or Copenhagen) for brands like Mercedes-Benz, Freightliner and smart. One of these projects was proudly presented at the TV-Awards in Cannes and the other even broke a Guinnes World Record.
But I never stopped drawing. For me Concept Art and Storyboarding jobs became the most exciting projects. Especially during my Bachelor I realised that drawing and painting is everything I always wanted to do. My semester projects have always been a challenge and a chance for me to improve my art skills.
As my final Bachelor project I created the first issue of my own story in a 60 pages comic book. In less then one and a half month I had to write down the plot and the story and illustrate everything. That has been a great experience for me.
After my Bachelor degree I have worked for two more years as a Motion Designer at Oliver Schrott Kommunikation GmbH in Cologne and Beijing. Recently I decided to focus more on following the profession of Illustration and Art.
This is why I am offering you with great joy my services as an Illustrator and Concept Artist and invite you to contact me for requests at any time.
