Jónmundur Gíslason

I started working as a 3D artist in the year 2000. In these 22 years, I have worked in various media outlets and have become more of a Generalist. Anything from creating simple prints and interactive media installations to working as a compositor for big VFX Production. I have great joy in doing a lot of different stuff and love having variety in my work.


I am currently working as an Independent contractor.
