Imaginism Studios / Schoolism

Exhibiting | Sponsors


Imaginism Studios was founded on March 9, 2005 and is based in Toronto, Canada. We specialize in pre-production character and concept design for film, TV, gaming, and publishing. It was co-founded by artists Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera, who were 2 of only 3 character designers credited on Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Our studio's work often features whimsical and fantastical elements, and our artists have a strong focus on storytelling and character development. We also create a lot of our own art, do our own projects (such as our Emmy Award-winning show, "Niko and the Sword of Light"), and, along with our industry friends, teach online at Our goal is to inspire, educate, and entertain other creative people with our work and have fun doing it! Plus we're really friendly, so please feel free to reach out!
