Here is the finished BG. I believe this background was only used for a few scenes in one episode. So much effort for so little screen time. But there was a lot of time and effort put into this series from both us and the company in France and everyone else who worked hard on the series. We loved Nine and all the villagers.... sniff

Here is another Franks Cat Back ground. First off is this, the pencil drawing. The backgrounds are approved firstly by the pencil drawings. Then any amendments required can be done at this stage. Once they are approved they are then cleaned up. I will show the cleaned up version later.

This is another cell from Rubbish King of the Jumble. I have flipped the back view of the cell just so its easier to look at and compare with the front. The drawing above the cell was on the animation paper that was with the cell. You always have a bit of paper on the back of the cell to protect the painting. Cell cell cell, just thought I would add the word cell a few more times just to be sure.

This is a development drawing for a pilot we did years ago. Poor dead meat!
That's not the title of the pilot! That was just a comment. I can't see anything being commissioned with a title poor dead meat!

This is the front and back of one of the Madonna cells from the Rod Steward - Motown Song video. You can watch it here
I did some shameless plugging.


These are some bugs used for a short skit for Mr Maker. We did all the animation in that series too.
