For Katharina from Dance school.
Some excerpts of Living Props I designed and colored 2011 when working for the feature Rusty Knight, which was released in the cinemas early this year.
These huge props I created when working for the feature 3D animation Rusty Knight in 2011.

The Rusty Knight Preproduction 2011. Rusty is living in a world where almost everything is made out of metal and is build out of different elements. Like e.g. a Cows body is made out of toaster, her head out of a cone and her hoof out of cups. Most things are second hand and recycled into new things. The challenge in designing the props was to always create something new, out of many old things and to use iron sheet as a base material for almost everything. Therefor I took many vintage elements, to create a creature or a modern element.
The original Ritter Rost Books by Jörg Hilbert are a must read to kids. And actually also a “must hear”, since Felix Janosa composed great songs which come on a CD with the books. The wonderful thing is, parents can also enjoy the read, since there are hidden jokes for adults.
Here I did both, the Design and the depicted Colors in Photoshop.
Juhuuu! The Trailer is out! I worked in the Preproduction Team in 2011. Great to finally see it moving!
I was allowed to spend two days on a convention of a nice company, and visualize their ideas for them to make fast and good progress, which is memorable. I was surprised how well it turned out. Since only one, out of eight groups was supported that way I could compare easily. The one which was visually supported had a very complex and advanced output. In this gallery I uploaded the recollection drawings, done in Photoshop.
Lisbon is a wonderful city with many creative people and shops. We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast of an Artist – she had this super sweet sticker on her fridge. In town there was this very cute Shop of Toys called Edicare with great brands like Djeco, Mudpuppy and Galison. The work of Hervé Le Goff, Geraldine Cosneau, Mike Lowery and Benjamin Chaud were highlights to me. All the other pics are self explaining I suppose. If not, feel free to ask.
Here are some excerpts of what I did during the Lillifee production in 2010. I color designed these cartoon canvas paintings with different brushes in Photoshop. They were later on taken and put into frames on the wall of an ice grotto, Woads secret place if you saw the movie. (I did the color, not the initial illustration)
I looove this plush Totoro – your own little critter. It makes a superb gift! It has very soft fur and is looking at you with these big (somewhat crazy) eyes … it even plays the flute when you need music hehe. You can get it from the friendly people at Mangabox.net! Just watch out not to get too attached if you are going to give him away. *snif*
