The Little Prince

In 2011, during a timeout on the production of "Mune", I had the opportunity to work a few weeks on the early development of the feature film "The Little Prince", directed by Marc Osborne. Here are some of the concepts and character designs I've done for the project:

The Abominables

In 2012, when I was working at Aardman studio I had the opportunity to work on several feature film projects, one of them was "The Abominables", adapted from the book of Eva Ibbotson. At that time the project was helmed by Luis Cook, and I think I've been the only artist to do designs for this project... Unfortunately the film has been quickly cancelled, so I take the opportunity to share some of the designs I've done for the movie:

Ray's Big Idea

In 2012 I had the opportunity to work on Ray's Big Idea, a short film directed by Steve Harding-Hill, at Aardman studio. In this 4 min cg movie you follow Ray, a plucky, pioneering pre-historic fish, through his ground-breaking plan to improve his life. On the project (which should be online in september 2015) I essentially worked on the color keys, here are some of the images I did for the beginning of the film:

In 2011 I had the opportunity to work a couple of weeks as an early concept artist on Dreamworks' Penguins of Madagascar movie. I've been asked to do some first designs for the vilain's submarine and secret island. It was still an early stage of the production, so many things changed through the making of the movie, but some ideas have been kept. Here some of the designs I did:


Here are some of the concepts and designs I have done for Batz, between 2007 and 2012.
Max Maléo directed the short and I've done the designs and art direction:

Flight of the Stories

To commemorate the First Word War Centenary and the opening of the new gallery at the Imperial War Museum in London, Aardman created a 1:30 mins film, directed by Darren Dubicki.
The aim of this movie was to recreate a painting-feel animation, with English war painters and their muted color palet -like Paul Nash- as main inspiration.
Here are some color keys and background paintings I've done for this project, which has been nominated to the Annie Awards this year, for Best Animated TV/Broadcast Commercial.
You can watch the film here
