E.J.Keats: John Henry Animation


For the 50th anniversary of Ezra Jack Keats children’s book “John Henry” I worked with the Keats Foundation to create a 6 minute animated read-aloud. It was a great experience working with his original art work and making a video that is in keeping with his style. I created the animation in After Effects, with sound design and mix by Suz Dyer.

E.J.Keats: The Snowy Day


The 50th anniversary of the seminal children’s book “The Snowy Day” called for something special. Working with the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation I created a video game where users help young Peter slide down a snowy hill. We worked together to create a full Flash animation of the book, using scans from original artwork and fresh voice-over and beat box sound track from Napolean Maddox.
