We had the good fortune of connecting with Zabriel Kennedy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Zabriel, what inspires you?
I am inspired by those who look to inspire the feeling of giving it forward is a amazing feeling

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I got where i am today by being a student first and taking a backseat until it is my time. It’s not easy especially when you see your peers continuing to elevate but timing is everything. I never would have thought i would ever be in the position i am today 5 years ago. My brand is all stay Toon’d and tiny couch animations is all about doing what you love with no pressure.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
The day would have to start with a coffee and i am not picky at all! Dunkin, the coffee bean, the cabin or Starbucks it’s a coin toss lol. Dave n busters is must and heading straight to full size basketball. Also the drinks and drinks are there so it’s a win win. Downtown Phoenix is also getting better so maybe catch some stand up comedy and scout the area afterwards

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Honestly my family friends and extended social media family staff at Disney stoopid buddies and Netflix laika have been a huge support system in my art journey
