       My name is Alex Henderson, I'm a freelance animator/concept artist from Ontario, Canada. I am a graduate from Sheridan College's Bachelor of Arts in Animation program, with credits in film, television, and advertising.

     Recently I've worked as an animator at DHX Media, and a director on award winning independent productions such as Breathing Space and The Rhino and the Redbill. Now a days I specialise in blending hand-drawn animation with CGI to create a unique style that is both efficient and cost-effective, making it accessible for small businesses to purchase their own animated media. 

    On this site you will find samples of my work, as well as commission information should you be interested in buying work from me. Thanks for taking the time to visit, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or requests.
