Stills from ANIMALS on HBO Feb 5 2016


ANIMALS

Created by Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano
Produced by the Duplass Brothers 
Premieres on HBO Feb. 5, 2016



I was the color supervisor on this show along with an amazingly talented group of artists at Starburns Industries. Music and improv play an important role in what makes this show unique to animation. It has a gritty New York vibe that accentuates our societal issues along with our attitudes towards one another and animals. The writing is simple leaving room for improv and comedic timing in the animation. Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano had a specific vision for the series, but gave us the freedom to add more to the show.

Rick and Morty BGs from Season 2

  
  Rick and Morty BGs from the final episode of season 2, The Wedding Squanchers. 

  It took a few talented people to design and paint these BGs. Before shipping off to Bardel for animation, I would go through all of the sequences to make sure everything hooked up. James McDermott, Jason Boesch, and I would get a last chance to make any design changes, checking the action, boards, characters and FX for the scenes (This was an action packed sequence!). 

I thought these looked especially nice! 


Painters: Me, Hedy Yudaw, Yaoyao Ma Van As

Foster's BGs Used for Teaching Children


  Don Masse, an elementary school teacher at Zamorano Fine Arts Academy in San Diego, created an assignment using art from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends to teach foreground, middle ground, background. Zamorano is an art focused elementary school that serves a diverse population of students.


The Foster's BGs below were used as examples

The children created the images below using cut paper for a background, then applying a middle ground layer, and a foreground on top.

Rocko's Modern Life Comic

Comic from a long time ago!

   Last week, one of the very talented compositors that I work with on a new show for HBO said it was cool to work with people who worked on shows that inspired her to go into animation. I see co workers wearing Rocko's Modern Life tee shirts, and talking about gags from the show. Little did I know that the show had such an impact.

   Here is a xeroxed copy of a painted cel that I found in my flat file. I was lucky enough to be the color supervisor on the series.
