Welcome to my personal webpage.
I am Patrick Deen, father of two, living in The Netherlands in the city of Haarlem.
I am the co-owner of a small animation company called: Captain Motion where the bulk of our work is geared towards business to business clients, meaning: we produce a lot of explainer animations and informative trade-show visuals.
With a background in art and music I sometimes feel the need to just explore and create without the boundaries of a client’s brief. I enjoy drawing and painting in my leisure time and I have a passion for books and independent (mostly traditionally produced) animation.
Here’s one of those animations that never ceases to inspire me;
“The man with the beautiful eyes” by Jonathan Hodgson.
Occasionally I like to take up coding. I’m currently working on a new version of “The Animator’s Toolbar“. A free Photoshop Plug-in to utilise Photoshop’s animation feature beyond its implementation. In 2015 I started the website photoshopanimation.com to collect the most interesting video-tutorials about animating in Photoshop. This year I’ll be creating a few tutorials of my own.
I’ll use this site as a platform to broadcast my personal projects and interest.
