2D flash animator for Loolatopia - Superhero Street!



Here is my latest animation toil...I've just finished working on this music video for kids, Superhero Street. I've done this job for Loolatopia, a lovely american children publishing company, based in Chicago. It was entirely animated in flash by myself, but the characters were provided by the company's graphic artist.
This video will be spread around, posted on websites for kids, and shown in all the public events that Loolatopia periodically organizes, which always involve all families united, parents and children. It's meant to bring loads of positive energies and vibes to all those who watch it.
I enjoyed working on it, although it's been quite a long work...but it's just so nice to see it all together now.
The song played is part of a CD that Loolatopia published, which contains many catchy children tunes, performed by the band "Dave Hamilton and the space cadets".
Nice stuff, you can buy their CD on line as well!
I've got another animation on schedule for them, which I'm gonna be starting soon.
I'll post my work in progress anyway! = )

Illustrations and final layout for wedding invites







Here is the finished version of the wedding invite I did for my dear friend Debbie!
I've posted the illustrations I did first of all, and the final photoshop layout of the card... She loved it, which I was really happy about. I enjoyed it!
Just for record...the theme of the dragon and elf was suggested by my friend, who purposely required a dragon and an elf for her wedding invites (as she's a dragon freak!). I just wanted to point that out in case anyone who sees this starts wondering why I chose such a weird theme for a wedding, also because it's well known that I love my fantasy creatures!
In short...it wasn't me this time!!! ; )

Hand drawn animator at Chase

video

This is one of the scenes I animated at Chase recently for the animation shortfilm "Samurai", which the studio has been making for the History Channel.
It's been really amazing to work at the studio as a hand drawn animator, and I enjoyed it immensely.
The project was really cool, I love the character designs that the guys created and the characters themselves, as well as the story and the backgrounds, which were absolutely fabulous!
A marvellous project indeed...
