Ask the Storybots:

"How Do Flowers Grow?"

Art directing this episode of Storybots was one of my favorite projects yet. From the initial concept to visual development, set fabrication and compositing, I got to challenge myself in many new and exciting ways with an amazing team.

Set Fabrication Process

A very ambitious part of this episode was painting a full-size VW Bus with a floral design for a sequence where the Storybots meet a hippie. After roughing out a design in Photoshop, I sketched the design directly onto

the bus and then used masking tape and spray paint to apply color in sections.
