About Henri Goldsmann
I am a freelance illustrator/2D Animator based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
I specialise in illustration for editorial, children's book publishing and advertising, as well as 2D Animation for Animated Shorts and Mobile Games.
My work has been published in newspapers and magazines around the world, such as The Seattle Times, The Washington Post, Folha de Sao Paulo, and Business 2.0.
Serious business: in order to meet a deadline, USA Today Newspaper once flew me over to Washington DC, just to decrease Sammy Davis Junior's bottom lip in a comic caricature illustration of The Golden Guys with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
It was produced for the cover of the USA Today Weekend Edition with a
28.3 million circulation.
I was awarded the prestigious Funny Bone Award from the Society of Illustrators -Madison Square Press in New York for an Entertainment Magazine cover featuring a caricature of comedian Rodney Dangerfield.
I am a published Author of a Children's Book named Harold (a dog's best friend), published by Templar in the United Kingdom, shortlisted for the
Cambridgeshire 'Read It Again' Children's Picture Book Award.
I currently illustrate and animate comics for a wide variety of clients through his new Startup Company ToonInYourHead and released a brand new 2D animated game in the spring of 2017 with a second game to be released in march 2018.
