April 2012. These are two very playful and upbeat car commercials that, with some free reign from agency, developed into this friendly storybook environment. I got to explore some interesting landscapes and characters and thanks to a good team of animators and artists pulled it off. There was also a lot of preliminary concept work that went into this, pages and pages of painstaking thinking with pencil on paper, and it paid off.
