Hello! My name is Anna and I'm an animator and illustrator working in Minneapolis MN. Lots of different things live on this blog - things I've done for my job, personal projects, and of course - knitting!

I am available for sketch & illustration commissions! Shoot me an email at annafleissner@gmail.com for more info!

Hey Everybody!

I went my back to volunteer at my old summer camp! It was a blast. Lots of cleaning, lake mucking, and winterizing happened. Also a spider down my shirt. That was a thing. Hope you enjoy!

Adventures! Part 1



I can’t seem to accurately capture how strongly I feel about boot season (aka fall). It’s almost here!! #dailydoodle #sketchbook #drawing #fall

HEY GUYS! GUESS WHAT! I’m not dead! 

August has been an insanely busy month for me. Between trips + big work projects + more trips, I’ve barely had a moment to sit down and record. So this week is going to be a SKETCHY double header with two videos dedicated to all the adventures I’ve had over the past two weeks. 

This first video I’ll be chattin’ about the plein air painting class I took! It was a blast! Here are some pics!



Working the weekends isn’t so bad when you can take it outside! #storyboardingonthego

Working away from my desk this afternoon. I hear silhouettes are very important in animation.
