Here is a design pitch I had to turn around quickly for yet another cut -out style /after fx job.It was for an unamed sandwich chain for my pal Paul at Ffake. First I got my pose.(when you design for cut-out no one ever needs to see your drawing.)Then I frantically "acquired "images.
This was a character background design job I recently enjoyed doing for a groovy local agency called Butler,Shine,Stern and Partners for a Radio Shack commercial.The job was "puppet style" animation in after fx with an etching look for the design.
This was the chemists background I designed,at this point everything was approved so I made replacement hand and face poses and the spot was animated .
Then somebody decided the spot looked too tame so it was literally "back to the drawing board "I was directed to reference Einstein ,Walter Matthau and Christopher Lloyd.
Einstein won but his hair and beard had to be crazied up.I drew all the stuff in this spot except the smoke ,the hamsters and their bycicles.
This was for google ,we cut out these drawings and shot them with my tiny camera and I cleaned it up and colored it in photoshop , very simple . Not Google material .
For Mattel , their character design , my painting .
An original show idea .
A big footed super model .
A motion - capture character , where one person was going to sit on the others shoulders .
A weazley gangster for a crime short .
