Sending out a contract to a client...I know I'm not the first (by far) to decorate Netflix envelopes. But I thought it would be fun. I hope it entertains the people at the distribution center. I am going to be disappointed if I ever find out that machines open and shred the envelopes without human interaction.

Last week, Nick Jr. premiered a Dora the Explorer movie, and along with it a music video by Shakira (you can see it here). As it turns out, I did the storyboards for the music video. It was a bit of a challenge, because they wanted to insert Shakira into scenes from the show. But I only had the storyboards from the movie, and no actual finished animation. So there was a little bit of guesswork there.
The rest of it had fewer restrictions, like where she paints the sky and tosses flowers into the air, etc. I had some loose direction and got just let my imagination and the song lyrics take me where they would go.
I was a subcontractor with Magnetic Dreams, who was working with producer Randy Campbell and director Roman White with the production company Revolution Pictures.
Anyway, here are a few of my boards I thought I'd share.

If you would like to see my entire sketchbook I submitted for the Brooklyn Art Library 2012 Sketchbook project, just click here.
This project, as I mentioned in a previous post, is part of the Art House CoOp. Participants sign up to receive a blank 5x7 32 page sketchbook. You pick a theme, and start filling the pages. Mail it back in by the deadline, and it becomes a permanent part of the Brooklyn Art Library. People come in and can check out the sketchbooks (but they don't leave the premises). Some of the books will go on a worldwide tour.
Meanwhile, here are a couple more images from it:

I've written a draft of a children's book about a monster who lives under a bed. These are some initial designs that I pulled from my memory of the one who lived under my bed.
I've got to go sillier, but had to get the scary ones out of the way first.
