This project came through my mate Griff, who’s a film-maker, illustrator, art director, all round good egg. It was a series of shorts to promote Stephen King’s new book Mr Mercedes, by referencing a few of his previous classics. I learned quite a lot about drawing for animation – being much simpler, much more direct and not fretting about details on something that would be seen for a split second. It’s something I would love to do more of.
As usual, we wished we’d had more time, more resources, more everything, but I think the animation does the job. All the heavy lifting was on Griff’s side – I need to point out – I just did some drawings, and the video below should link through to Griff’s Vimeo channel.
