Christmas is here again Pt.01

Wow...time flies! It was just summer the other day, and now it's Christmas. Craziness!! So to keep things in the Christmas spirit, I figured I'd post some artwork I did a few years ago.

Back in early 2005, I was approached by the folks over at Renegade Animation . They had a Christmas feature they working on, and they were kind enough to ask if I'd be interested in doing some design for them. I had a blast working with them on Puffy Ami Yumi, so I jumped at the opportunity.

The following is just a sampling of some of the sketches I did for them. A few people might remember seeing some of the rejected concepts being posted earlier on the blog. If so, sorry for the double post :)






I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the final product last year, and it came out AMAZING! A huge congrats to both Ashley Postlewaite and Darrell Van Critters for putting out a very special holiday movie.
