Hello! I'm Nathan Wells, owner of One Brick Studios. Maker, animator, graphic designer, filmmaker - I dabble in all of these things. I love working with my hands - making little characters, building miniature worlds, animating fun stories.
Through this website and my videos, I'm seeking to chronicle my creative experiences and provide inspiration and entertainment to anyone interested in building, crafting and animating.
Feel free to reach out and say hi!
