Natures Kitchen – Illustrating Animals and Food!

Meal-Boxes-No-backgroundThis project couldn’t of offered a better combination of my favourite things; Drawing and FOOD!

And good food at that! All made with love and care with the chompers health at heart.

I was asked by Owners of www.lovenatureskitchen.co.uk Kezi Silverstone and Hellen Stevenson to illustrate their website. And so I did.

We illustrated everything!

Check out lots of the pickies I made on my ‘Illustration’ page and once it’s up and running here is the link to their site: www.lovenatureskitchen.co.uk

Puber Dagboek (Teenage Diaries)

So months have past and a new year has begun. And man it’s been a busy couple of months!… make that half year!

But a good half year 😉 I did take on the project with Submarine to make a pilot and that evolved in to a 2 part animation which has since been on Dutch TV channel NPO3 😀

And there is talk of making more!

Check out the films and links below and go to my animation page to see more 😉

Character Design – Green Bee

s-Groenebij-01Fun Fun Fun!

I’ve been working with Loep-Training again and had the pleasure to do some more character design! And this time there was a need for a Green Bee. This little character will be illustrating the Groene bijtjes club (Little Green Bees club) where kiddies can learn all sorts of stuff while having loads of fun!

Below are the sketches and a few of the poses I made 😉

Submarine production company, monsters, teenagers & Me!

Amsterdam’s Submarine production company approached me recently about taking part in the making of a pilot animation about teenager diaries. This is a fun project where the animation depicts the teenagers telling the stories as awkward monsters. The negotiations are still going on so there is still no go ahead but have a sneaky peak at some monster I designed to get the creative ball rolling :

Cartoons, Animation & Stop-motion

Spring is in the air and EWC has rolled in to the new year at a gentle tempo but with some fantastically fun projects.

Sesame Street NL

Starting of I’ve been rounding off the Animation for Sesame Street NL. Finishing the edit for television last week. This short and sweet animation is about a little slug who gets cold and needs a new coat.

I can’t tell you too much, (Contract rules) but here’s a little GIF to give you a taste of whats to come  and the scene layouts 😉

Cartoons & Chiropractors

And then there were Cartoons. My pals the Chiropractors asked again for a bit of fun in their annual magazine and this time it focused on ‘Self diagnosis’.  The caption says ” I already diagnosed myself on the internet. So i’m only here for a second opinion!’

Stop-Motion

Also this Spring I was launched in to a mad project with Cloud Berry film for an in-house explainer animation for Cygnific (Sales and Services for KLM & Air France).

The project was to be a mash-up Stop-motion/Whiteboard animation explaining the in’s and outs of an internal project, to be presented to all of those who work at Cygnific (+600 peeps).

The idea was that it would be fun and inspiring to watch while explaining their future goals within the company.  Easy Peasy… Although the deadline was 2 weeks from the start date ! Whaaa! bit short for a stop-motion explainer video!

But we managed to push out the deadline, wrote the script in 2 days (Breaking down a pile of information as tall as myself into a script less than one A4) Knock out a storyboard by the end of the week, and have props collected and made by mid week the following week, ready for production on the Wednesday!

That makes, 2 Weeks Pre-production & filming. Not Bad!

Now I’m busy with the Whiteboard animation and next week we go into Post-production, with the final edit and sound design etc. Phew!

It’s tight, but it gives you energy and pushes boundaries, making you think smart and produce creative, fun solutions. Watch this space for the final result.

But for now, here below are some photos of the production and my whiteboard tryout.
