Jerry Suh is a Background Artist at Nickelodeon Animation Studios. She has freelanced at JibJab Media, Awesome Inc and Psyop. We were given the opportunity to interview Jerry about her career and creative process.
Were you interested in art from a young age?
It sounds pretty cliche, but yes, I was always into drawing since I could hold a pencil.
If so, were you encouraged to persue it by your family?
Not in the beginning. My parents were very academic driven, and they didn’t want me to be a cartoonist. As parents, they were not too supportive of my idea of becoming a starving cartoonist, haha.
