Nickelodeon

We partnered with Nickelodeon and Nick Jr to create an animated short teaching kids the importance of putting on sunscreen. There was a lot of dancing and singing involved (mostly us).

We had some fun reimagining various characters from the Nick and Nick Jr lineup. Here’s a look starting with some of the early sketches.

CRAFTY BACKGROUNDS

We created large background scenes using many different art techniques to create a DIY world. The clouds are photographed cotton balls, the sand is sandpaper that we scanned in, and hand-painted textures fill almost every shape.
