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.

MTV: Pimp My Ride




The premiere of the new show Pimp My Ride on MTV needed a fun online component and our producers had the idea of doing customizable cars. We decided to create an Flash toy that allowed users to pick a base car type, then customize it with different paint, wheels and accessories. I had spent much of my youth drawing wicked machines and was delighted to have a chance to work on this project.

After developing a quick flash POC I then drew 3 different cars; classic, coupe and SUV. I had a blast creating parts like hood scoops, flames, sidepipes, etc. Working with our Flash developers we put the interaction together and launched the toy with the premiere. The show was a huge success and the toy consistently came up in the top 30 pages on the site for almost 3 years.
