Character concepts for a spot I produced for Trivago
Concept art for my short Totems
This was a project I pitched directly to Mark Anthony brands. Mike's Hard Lemonade hired us to craft a video for their new 'Harder' line of beverages. With original concepts, boards, and illustrations, and taking inspiration from the bold and unconventional 70’s monster movies and comic books—we helped push the ‘Harder' brand even harder.
This was the best preforming video for Mike's Hard for the year of 2015!

I had been asked to help pitch some characters for an All State video. Had some good fun with these dudes.
A dumb project from college I never finished but I still think is cute. I lost the original video files a while ago. The original video had a dude dressed up in a suit dancing and opening and closing his mouth. Was actually pretty cute. The last two shots on this page had initial frames from the project.
