On the Record
ART DIRECTION/ DESIGN
This story is about a young man that was arrested and spent time on Rikers, and recounts his thoughts about his life the night he was released. I was responsible for creating the designs and backgrounds and wanted to reflect his feelings of uncertainty with the color choices and moods.
Below are some of the color layouts and character designs that I provided for the animators at Ace and Son Moving Picture Company, who provided the animation.
