VW Desert Island
Happy New Year strangers!
My new year's resolution is (just like last year) to faithfully post my animation work with a considerable delay.
This one is from late November 2010, a VW ident for the Discovery Channel, directed by Pete Baynton at Tandem.
I tremendously enjoyed this job because every animator had their own 10 and 15 second ident to animate, making it more like a personal project than a job. And by now, we are all masters in the new school of black&white animation, so stress levels were quite low.
The style was inspired by 'The New Yorker' designs,but I have to admit that my character occasionally looked more like Papa Smurf. That's the Belgian in me, I guess :)
