About me

Hello there. I'm Katy Davis, AKA Gobblynne - an animator and illustrator. I work with brands, agencies and individuals on creative projects - from bigwigs like Sony, CBBC, Barclays and Samsung to smaller companies and startups alike. I love to bring concepts to life - creating characters, enchanting worlds and magical creatures for TV, music videos, print or digital/viral work.
