Abbey's Story
Abbey Vasquez is a teen character designer, artist, animator animation-director/producer/writer, blogger, cosplayer, and more.  She gets most of her unique and original creature characters, their stories and worlds, from her own very vivid and colorful dreams, she says, "Basically I dream in cartoons!" (More on this unique gift below.) She is a passionate and driven artist who works on her art, characters, story/animated series ideas & animations every day without let up.  She is passionately dedicated to getting her characters, stories, and morals and lessons learned out as cartoons, animated series or animations - to help other unique kids, as well as highly sensitive people (HSP's), like herself, to gain tools to help them deal with issues like bullying, emotional manipulation, emotional and mental illness, family dysfunction, and so much more. 

Abbey has created over 100 original characters and has many, many stories and animated series ideas in planning. She is currently working on an animatic for an animated short she is making through a Cartoon Network animation course she is taking. The short is for her main show idea The12YearMind, starring Beethoven and Peter, a cast of supporting characters, along with the villains of the shows "The Negative Emotion Monsters" and their hidden and mysterious leader....Him.  She hopes to share through her characters, their loyal friendships and their stories what she has learned "growing up different...gifted, highly sensitive & highly creative," and through her own experience with severe emotional bullying.  She wants to tell other unique kids like herself, "Don't believe what the bullies say about you, only surround yourselves with those who uplift, and don't be afraid to do what is uniquely important and interesting to you - because you are awesome just the way you are!"

​​Abbey's Special Gift
Since a very young age - Abbey has been an ideas person.  She possesses a very unique gift - she often dreams in very vivid and colorful original cartoons, with original characters and worlds. She also seems to have an unending imagination and a talent for pulling together details into complex and comprehensive characters.  She goes on to explain:

"In my dreams I not only see the new characters in their unique and detailed worlds, but most times I switch from 1st person to 3rd, and switch between each of the characters. This way I can not only see each of them clearly, but I can also see things from their personal perspectives, what they see, what they think, and everything they feel and do, as if it were happening to me. After I awaken, I draw each of the new characters as I remember them, and document what I have seen, felt and thought through them; the world they were in and any quest they may have been on. From there, I am able to develop them further, using what I've learned through my many unique interests and insatiable love of interesting and unusual facts. Finally I fill in any missing details using my own imagination. I also design other characters, two of my main characters are Beethoven & Peter, they are the stars of my story/show in planning "The 12 Year Mind." Being a kid that was always a little different, at times in my childhood they were my only friends and confidants, and accompanied me on all my adventures. Through their story and pure and innocent friendship, I hope to share with other kids like me the lessons I've learned that have strengthened me and made me who I am today :)."
