Animation wonder Leon Arispundandar hails from the world’s most island-laden nation: Indonesia.
He immigrated to Canada 14 years ago, heard the siren’s call of animation, oceans and mountains and enrolled at the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts specializing in character animation. After seven years of TV and games animation in the oceanfront cities of Vancouver, Halifax, Miramichi NB, and Toronto and for shows like The Cat in the Hat and Happy Tree Friends, Leon landed here at Switch in Collingwood on the shores of Georgian Bay.
Leon has yet to kayak or canoe but man his characters can and then some. We know, we see his characters in action every day at Switch.
