Ahoy! In case you’ve stumbled in here, lost and confused, my name’s Nathaniel Caauwe and this is some stuff I’m not embarrassed to show. My creative endeavors have gone from music (violin for eight years, still play a little now) to traditional art, digital art, photography, filmmaking, visual effects, and now web design and development, with aims to develop a few nifty mobile apps I think people will like (progress on that front is slow).

Since February 2014 I’ve worked as a web designer at a marketing firm in Norfolk, NE. Much of my time is spent developing and maintaining WordPress themes or building client websites. I also spend many nights and weekends working from home as a freelance visual effects artist, specializing in rotoscoping, paint, and compositing. At some point I’d like to jump back into VFX full-time, but for now I’m using the steady paycheck of my day job to pay off the last of my medical debt.

Anywho, feel free to poke around. I have some artwork, behind the scenes on some of my films, a repository of my videos, and a photography gallery—with prints available for purchase, should anything catch your eye. Enjoy!
