This month’s ArtWanted! feature once again leads us to the wonderland that is animation. When Bram Van Rompaey and Reinout Swinnen first founded their own company in 2006, they had no idea how deep the rabbit hole would go. Today, Rabbit Hole Antwerp is an established studio, providing 2D and 3D animation, motion graphics, illustrations, and most recently, AR experiences for a wide variety of clients. The co-founders’ shared vision is firmly rooted in a deep love for animation, with their work just oozing personality from every frame. The two of them complement each other well, not only in their creative endeavors, but in our interview as well!
