Junior Digital Artist at Mighty Coconut

Kyla Michelle Harrington is a junior digital artist at Mighty Coconut, an animation and visual effects studio specializing in original and branded content, in Austin, Texas. She’s responsible for rotoscoping, painting, and compositing. “I enjoy the ability to hone in on specific skills still while learning and practicing new and hardly used skills. The industry offers so much for me to touch on and explore,” she says.

Kyla’s creative inspiration comes from working alongside other artists. “We really do thrive off of each other.” She adds that her profession is constantly evolving—there’s always something new and challenging to learn. “Whether it is a new technique or a new program to achieve the unachievable, [I] am constantly in awe.”

Kyla, who in 2015 earned a Bachelor of Science in Visual Effects & Motion Graphics from The Art Institute of Austin, says that her education touched on many different courses and skillsets that made her a versatile artist. She also credits the professional instructors with bringing real world experience* into the classroom. “With instructors and advisors from the industry, I was able to get hands on learning with practical, useful information.”
