Welcome to my Deviant Art Page!

I am Founder & Director at my own animation boutique called, and working hard on lay outs and key frame animation.
On November 5 & 6, we had a great turn out with lots of visitors and interest in traditional animation from my work portfolio and met fans of all ages.

You can find it here

Here is my work reel and pencil tests on the website, PS. I am located in China, so it is difficult to post or link stuff directly due to the blocks, we use the website to help connect all the videos and links securely for everyone to see properly.

You can get a free sketchbook EPub format, 50 pages of concept designs, just send me a private message with your email and will send it to you :)

Ciao ~  P


PierreDeCelles's Profile Picture
Pierre DeCelles
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Pierre De Celles is a Canadian animator, best known for directing 1988's Pound Puppies and the Legend of Big Paw. He was also the Supervising Director for the Spiral Zone animated series. In the 1990s, he did Ren Hoek's screaming and cackling in "Big House Blues," the pilot of The Ren and Stimpy Show.

Life and Work

Quoting his own words, Pierre De Celles “... was born early in the morning of December 14, 1951 in Montreal, Canada. My mother was superstitious and did not want me to be born on the 13th, thinking it would bring me bad luck, so she held out until one minute passed midnight to give birth. I never understood that, since her brother (my uncle) was born on the 13th and he was the luckiest man I ever knew!”. He started to draw at quite an early age and over time, using again his own words “... drawing became my joy". Uninspired by the stiff school system of his times, like many men and women of his generation, he left school to try to find his own way; Pierre De Celles adolescence is a glaring example of the 1960s counterculture movement and aspirations — including ideals of peace, free love, compassion and human fellowship, harmony with nature, communal living, artistic experimentation, sharing of resources — with its urgency to redefine social life ethos and boundaries.

Pierre De Celles started to learn by himself, practicing while working for a living: he was a newspaper courier, a milkman helper, worked in a pie factory, at 'Ogilvy' department store, etc., until he finally landed with a job in an animation studio.

Pierre De Celles Animation career span over 40 years and several countries (Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, USA, Japan, China) and he has been involved in projects with Wang’s Production (Taiwan), Warner Brothers Studio (USA), Marvel Production (USA), DIC Entertainment (France then USA), Atlantic/Kushner-Locke Inc. (USA), Hanna-Barbera Productions Inc. (USA) among others.

He is an appreciated draftsman and painter, in 2004 a main exhibition of his 'Zhong Kui' paintings along with painting of his artist friend Mr. Dong Zhi Yi, was organized by the Shang Hai International Cultural Communication Association and shown in Shang Hai, the opening ceremony hosted by Canadian consulate general Robert B. Mackenzie.

Pierre De Celles most sought-after paintings and drawings include the “Zhong Kui” series, “Red Riding Hood” series, “Don Quixote” series, “U.F.O” series, and “Buddha” series.

Thank you Astralseed for your help. I think about the time it takes to do the blog and just have such little time to update. But got a chance to see how things are going and got more illustrations on the way :)

Allow me to break in your comment board...

The works look real nice with a great balance of contrasting colors...

The page layout is easily navigated and really focuses on the works.

I, for one, think you are headed in the right direction.

Thank you for you words,and it is a challenge to understand Deviant Art because it is new to me. I will keep trying to post here.

Don't feel bad...

The people here love to help out.
Deviant Art is unlike any other community I have had the privilege of working with...
And I am still quite new myself.

And a bit dated also.
(Shhh...Don't tell anybody!)

We're all just a bunch of fish swimming in the same pond.
