Nene León, canciones infantiles (lion kid, nursery rhymes)
Nene León (something like "lion kid" in spanish) is an independent music and video project for babies and children starring a kid that loves lions and dreams of traveling to Africa.
The inspiration for this project came to me with my recent parenthood, becoming a breaking point in my advertisement career.
My role: Concept / illustration / songwriting / storyboard / direction
Music composer: Ignacio Hernández
Animation and illustration: Fernando Albea & Raúl Echegaray (MadPlane)
Web (in spanish): www.neneleon.com
The very very very first draft of the main characters to represent the idea as it came to my head:
First facial expression studies of Nene León (here starts the work of the proffesional ilustrators / animators):
