Poster design done for the 48

August 1st, 2011

This was done really really quickly to be used as a poster in the set for our animation this year. It also provided us with a way to have the line that was compulsory to the competition without resorting to dialogue cards since we’d pulled silent film.

The intent was to do a Russian constructivist style poster, but also still maintain the style of the animation itself. In fact those of you up on your Russian posters should recognize which one I was riffing off of pretty easily. Not too bad for just a couple hours, I guess.

It’s fun every now and again to draw in a different style. (especially one that is really fast)

A couple portraits of the characters we used for this year’s 48 hour film project.

These were done over the weekend with the intention of having them added to the closing credits. Due to some communication issues, that didn’t end up working out. But I think all told they came out pretty well. Especially for me drawing in a completely different style than I naturally work in.

The characters are based on character designs done by Roberto Rubet. Check out more of his work at www.idodont.com

Once more into the breach!

July 22nd, 2011

For the last four years running I’ve had the pleasure(?) of being a part of a team that sits down to make a short 3d animated film over the course of a single weekend. We get a randomly assigned genre, a prop that must be present, and a line of dialogue then are given the GO! command. It runs from 7PM Friday EST to 7PM Sunday EST.

We make sure to show our rapid fall into insanity through as many channels as possible as well.

Follow the ridiculousness here!

See you on the other side folks!
