The client presented me with a script and an idea: Giant, man-eating carp shooting out of the Chicago River and devouring everything in sight. I had started developing artwork for the movie concept the summer before in the form of a t-shirt design, but the client had also mentioned an animated trailer. A year later, he had the funds and I had the time.
This was probably one of the most fun and most absurd projects I've had the pleasure of working on, and I really hope this becomes a real movie. Anybody who's seen Pirahna 3d knows there's an audience for this.
