ABOUT


I am Nolan J. Downs. The "J" is for Joseph; It's my grandfather's name and he's a real hard-working, salt of the Earth kind of guy. I'm an animator, illustrator, and filmmaker based out of the Chicago burbs. I have a dog named Aberdeen. She protects my yard from chipmunks, squirrels, bunnies, and other cute animals. Feel free to reach out to me, and don't be offended if I don't respond quickly.
