Mr. Peabody & Sherman

downloadI worked on this project most of 2013. I had a such great time on it!

There were a lot of interesting challenges to tackle, and I had the pleasure of getting to know and work with an amazing team of artists. Congratulations to everyone involved in making this a wonderful movie!

I definitely had to push myself out of my comfort zone, having to go for a much more cartoony and colorful look that I am used to! A LOT of lessons learned.

We took some time to design a couple of posters for the movie. Some of these are total nonsense:


Design Stuff

I mostly worked doing color work on the film, but here are a couple of things I designed. This includes a lot of fruit:
