Add two teaspoons of unadulterated insanity, combine one cup of finely diced office chowder and a pinch of gratuitous nudity. Strain mixture through office cubicle and blend ingredients from nine to five, use overtime if necessary. Final result should be a hilarious animated glimpse into the inner workings of a high-tech workplace. Post-production by Philippe Desmarais.

An oldie but a goldie. This is my third year animation film from University. Premise is simple enough. An eccentric teenager living in the dysfunctional town of Littlecrock describes his life story in under 4 mins. This film was done entirely under the camera using paint on cell. Over a thousand images were painstakingly painted over a period of a few months. Warning, full frontal “cartoon” nudity ahead.

I did this illustration for my talented friend, Gordon the Magician. He wanted something fun and lively to match his personality without the usual magician trademarks. I even added his cow hide pants into the sketch. You can visit Gordon’s link here: http://www.disbelieving.com
