Shawn Turek cartoonified

Hi! My name is Shawn Turek and I draw stuff.

I create illustrations and comics/graphic novels, as well as produce whiteboard explainer videos. I’m interested in collaborating with other writers and storytellers, so contact me if my style is a good fit for your story!

Explainer Videos

I create custom whiteboard explainer videos to convey complex and abstract ideas in an entertaining and engaging way. In this day of smartphones and social media, attention is the new “currency”, and my explainer videos are a great way to stand out and hold a viewers attention long enough to unpack the details of your product or service.
