Lezz is more
My name is Lesley Blom, and I am an animator and concept designer based around the area of Rotterdam. I draw from my education in animation and urban design to create animations, illustrations and maps, with a strong focus on environments where it all comes together!
The core of what I do with my work is visualizing narratives and connecting complex issues to create a unique concept that have a balans between science and art. The format for this narrative and concept can be an animation, illustration or even a map! My goal with my work is to make our complex world a little clearer for everyone.
I have a strong fascination for exploring our world’s deep and complex history and discovering the mysteries of outer space! I love films and novels that excel in creating a believable and deep world that tells a story on its own, with a complexity that you can uncover on your own. I like to play games with a lot of immersion and strategic thinking. And last but not least, I also like to read books about human history and expand my understanding of the current (and very intricate) world we live in today!
