Welcome to my website!

My name is Benjamin Houwen, and I am a passionate animator and illustrator with over 10 years of experience in the industry. My love for animation began at a young age and led me to pursue a vocational education in animation/audiovisual and later a bachelor's degree in illustration/animation. These studies have provided me with a solid foundation in the principles of animation and illustration and have helped me develop my style focused on illustration.

Illustrations & Graphic Design

I have also honed my skills in illustration and graphic design. With a solid foundation in the principles of design, I have created logos, flyers, business cards, and other promotional materials for various businesses. My experience also includes creating illustrations for birth announcements, wall murals, and posters.

I take pride in my ability to create visually appealing designs that effectively communicate the message of my clients. I work closely with my clients to understand their specific needs and preferences, and I am committed to delivering high-quality work that meets their expectations. Whether you are looking for a unique logo design or eye-catching promotional materials, I am confident that I can provide you with the design solutions you need.

Animation & Motion graphics

My animation work encompasses a wide range of styles, from 2D animation to mixed media and everything in between. While I don’t specialize in stop-motion, I do have experience with it and enjoy incorporating different techniques into my work. For example, I like to use scanned painted or drawn work and insert it into animations to create a unique look and feel.

In addition to traditional animation techniques, I’ve also worked with Adobe Character Animator to create animated characters for video content. I’ve even transformed poems into animations, which was a particularly challenging and rewarding project. I’ve also created animated ads for agencies, using my skills in illustration, graphic design, and animation to create engaging and effective visuals.

Alongside my animation work, I have a lot of experience in sound editing and mastering. I use Adobe Audition to fine-tune the audio in my animations and ensure that it perfectly complements the visuals. I’m always looking for new opportunities to challenge myself and expand my skills, so if you have a project in mind that requires high-quality animation and sound design, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


As an experienced animator, I understand the importance of editing in the animation process. I have extensive knowledge and experience in using Adobe Premiere and After Effects to edit and enhance animations.

In addition to my animation skills, I also have experience in filming with a camera, including the Canon 5D. This knowledge allows me to capture the best footage possible and make the most of it during the editing process.

Like with animation, audio is an integral part of the editing process. My experience in audio editing and mastering in Adobe Audition allows me to enhance the sound quality of animations and make them more engaging for the audience.

Furthermore, I have created videos for various purposes, including advertisements for agencies and promotional material for businesses. My expertise in editing allows me to create captivating videos that effectively convey the desired message.

Overall, my proficiency in editing software and my understanding of how editing contributes to the success of animations make me a valuable asset to any project.
