Animations

Baucis: City in the Sky

This imaginative animation of Marco Polo flying on a giant plant is very loosely inspired by the city Baucis in the book Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino. Some aspects of the movement were created in Spine (such as Marco and the flying plant) but the final animation was ultimately composed of many elements in After Effects. The wings are animated frame-by-frame.

 

Pickery's Potions Cauldron Animation

This whimsical cauldron animation was made for the game Pickery's Potions with a variety of techniques in Photoshop and After Effects. The fire was drawn frame by frame, and the cauldron and swirling smoke particles were animated using keyframes.

Gritzel Animation

This silly creature takes inspiration from dinosaurs, wolves, dragons and alligators. The animation was hand drawn on pencil and paper, then scanned and assembled in photoshop.
