Casey Fooshee-Gurtler is an 18 year old aspiring queer artist living in Colorado Springs. She works with both digital and traditional media, making use of markers and vibrant colors. She focuses on character illustrations. She has developed a style of cartooning and aims towards getting involved in the animation industry as a storyboard artist or animator. The animation medium is attractive to her because of the deeper themes and stories these drawings can tell, and because of the emotion it can evoke in the audience.
