Voxel Artist and Animator

Zach is a French Canadian self-taught Voxel artist living in the UK. Although he has almost a decade of experience in working in the game industry, Zach initially studied Urban Design. While creating 3D designs for cities, he started exploring game design on the side, which spurred him to further explore and understand the world of game development through Voxel art.

His stylized and clean Voxel art has led him to work with many small-scale projects for indie developers, as well as for larger projects with clients like Hipster Whale. Zach works on freelance projects and is the creative director of his own studio Bunnyhug, currently creating their own game that is soon to be launched.
