Had much fun coming up with the look for this film. For the backgrounds I wanted a solid but light look to give the city a summery feel to it, then adding lines, colour splashes and details to frame the main character.

Starting off drawing up our hero had him looking as on the left but the client wished for a more “human” look so I had to narrow the head and give up my vision of a spherical headed alien dwarf sporting a slip-over. I can live with that.

The animated commercial introducing SPOTIFY to the US, produced in january and now released and online for your viewing pleasure.
Carl Waldekranz and Kaj Drobin tossed a script in my lap and told me it had to be green and white and one minute long. I accepted the challenge, locked the door and got to it.
