Sawasdee (“hello” in Thai)! My name is Aekkarat Sumachaya, art director and co-founder of Animania, an animation studio located in Bangkok, Thailand.

When it comes to my art, I am inspired by my lifestyle, experimenting and the environment around me. I then layer ideas on top with stories, personal opinions and my wild imagination. I hope people will enjoy my work and get my message.

One day, I left a pack of instant noodles on the floor. Moments later, I came back to pick it up only to discover a colony of ants having a picnic in my food. When there was nothing left to do, I took the opportunity to observe their behavior and that’s how I came up with the idea of Princess Ant. Her armor is an exaggerated version of a real-world jewel beetle’s wing. Its color is a remarkable metallic green, which corresponds to the characteristics of the tribe’s civilization. She carries a fork from a dollhouse as a weapon (Fig.01).

In Fig.02 is a character for The Magical Beans Story, a children’s adventure. They live in a location that resembles a volcano and the leader of the group is a 16 year old girl.

I love vintage vehicles. Despite modern technology, I think vintage materials were more dependable and built to last (Fig.03).
