Matte! Nande? | Animation Showreel 2020

Maybe a new showreel for 2020 will add a little positivity to this year

Nicker Paint Office | Painting Backgrounds for Animation #19

What the old Nicker Paint office looked like… This painting was inspired by a Luca Papeo painting, as well as the recent demolishment of this building. After 45 years Nicker Poster Colour had to move out, and we wanted to gift this as a small token when I visited them a few days ago.

For the animation, we wanted to keep things loose & cartoony, and to animate the feet as if they were little stamps leaving behind their painterly paw prints.

It took us 10 years, but we finally painted a caricature of ourselves ????

Tokyo Drinking Alley | Painting Backgrounds for Animation #17

This one is not really part of an animated film, but rather one shot we created to try and capture an feeling or memory. Something which brings you back to a moment or place. Maybe the end of a night of drinking too much in a drinking alley, one of things in Japan that are so much part of the city life. Hopefully you can transport yourself there for a brief moment, or even relate…
