Project Outline:

Working with Buzz Hawkins, the voice and writer of the Bradshaws, I was given the task of bringing to life his flat drawings. Hawkins was set on a simplistic flat style of imagery which he planned to take later into books.

Through the development of the 30-second shorts I took this idea and expanded it to have background elements stood in relief. Some elements were superimposed to give a cutout feel along with the degraded colour effect to tie in with the overly simplistic characters.

The idea was to quickly turnaround very simple compic strips, making almost animatics.
