Welcome to my blog!

Hi, My name is Gabriel!

Visit my portfolio at gabrielaronson.com!

I am a freelance animator, motion designer and art director, currently based in New York. I have a BA in Scenic Design and Puppetry from Sarah Lawrence College in New York and a Graduate Diploma in Motion Graphics from Chelsea College of Art and Design. My background in theater influences my work in many different ways, particularly my enthusiasm for critical discourse and collaborative problem solving. I bring to the table a broad range of experience, and love working with creative thinkers on exciting and challenging projects.

If you would like to find out more or discuss an upcoming project, don't hesitate to contact me at

Here you will find a collection of my work in scenic design, motion graphics, photography, and other areas.

History Channel Competition

This past month I won a finalist spot in an animation competition sponsored by Aniboom and the History Channel! I was the community pick, voted to the number one spot out of about 250 entries!

My entry is below:
