Philip De Guard x "Bewitched Bunny"

Can anyone ever get tired of Looney Tunes?

I was doing a bit of traveling this weekend and managed to watch a few episodes before my laptop crapped out on me.  These screenshots were taken from the Bugs Bunny episode "Bewitched Bunny"[YouTube]:

Bugs Bunny is as dapper as his framing.
Everything about the witch's house is so crooked.

The backgrounds by Philip de Guard are frustratingly good.

Amazing wall-art for any child eater.

I think more posts about Philip de Guard are in order...

TED-Ed: The Powers of Ten

I'm a bit busy at the moment to write too much more about it at this time, but check out TED-Ed and my website for more information!  Unfortunately at the moment the great sound people over at Henry Boy went uncredited, but that should be amended shortly.

Stay tuned for more!

TED-Ed: Storyboards VS. Final Product

Here's a side-by-side of some shots from my upcoming animation for TED-Ed.  On the left is the original storyboard accompanied with their final composition.

This scene originally called for more complicated movements by the piano tuner, but in order to meet the deadline I simplified the overall animation in the final.

This character was originally supposed to be a young boy, but given what happens to him I didn't want to have to redo anything... that's why I ended up going with "non-descriptive creepy guy"

There's a lot of text animation in this piece, and I saved laying that out until I was in production mode.

This one turned out pretty similar to the boards.

This scene was modified a bit to take advantage of the screen space... keeping the magnifying glass small on screen for 15 seconds would've looked too awkward. 

I kept his teeth clenched together to save some time... the sacrifices one must make in order to beat the clock!
