Billie and the Dinosaurs- (exorcising Ghosts of 2017)

Billie and the Dinosaurs is a sort of musical story production created by Tim Ferguson and a composer (and a team of others).
Anyway last year- around this time- Tim contacted me about illustrations for the story/production.
Of course I was in....and set about filling a sketchbook of ideas while I waited for the wheels to turn.
Then they asked for a quote- which I did -
i think it needed quite a lot of work potentially
-I was  actually lowballing it-

but then it was nothing- or 'we'll let you know"-
which sounds slightly better than 'don't call us- we'll call you"

So needless to say I was pretty disappointed- and actually googled a month or 2 ago to see what happened/who they went with...
Didn't seem like the boat I'd missed had left really- or hadn't gone too far...

Anyway here's a few of the loose thumbnails I filled a sketchbook with- super loose on the characters but at least I liked the feel of them...

Begone ghosts!

In with 2018

A preview from 3dsmax of animation I worked on last year- spent a few days after
adding wobble to the tower of bugs,
fixing the un-enthusiatic little bug at front
and fixing the tower assemble so no-one intersects with each other etc....
I'll try to get a hold of the finished ad.
