Aisha Al-Jaidah is an illustrator and animator. She began her career in 2010 as a motion graphics artist at Al Jazeera Children’s Channel. As a senior animation producer, she developed the first animated children’s series created by a Qatari. Al-Jaidah received a scholarship to study animation and graduated from Kingston University London, an achievement that motivated her to launch her own animation production company. She hopes Blue Penguin Animation will be one of the first companies in Qatar to fully produce animation locally.
