Joanna Davidovich was born in small suburb of Jacksonville Florida into a family of Ukrainian gymnasts. When it became apparent she could neither execute a back handspring, nor bear the minimum amount of body glitter required for competition, she fell back onto a talent for doodling sunglass-wearing flamingos and somehow made a career out of that.
She earned her BFA in Animation from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Based in Atlanta, she works as a freelance animator, character designer, story artist, and all-around 2D animation-type person for commercials, promos, and television shows.
In addition to her commissioned work Joanna has self-produced several pieces, she created the titles for the BBC3 show Touch Me I’m Karen Taylor (2007), and the Laughing Orangutans (2008) cartoons for PBS’s Electric Company. Her animated short Monkey Rag (2013) is still running wild on the festival circuit and is now available to see online.
