Fons Schiedon invited me and Gabriel Fermanelli to animate 10 badges of dishonor

Created on the occasion of Pictoplasma's 10th Anniversary exhibition.

// We´ve played a small animated ping-pong
with Loup Blaster:
The Doodle Project started as a very little animated stickman.
Some individual frames were sent to friends so they could draw a character on it.
I thought it would be nice to send it to also to people I admire and I didn´t know personally.
Suddenly there were 62 Illustrators and 14 musicians from all around working on it.
Amazingly enough the Doodle Project became a big collaborative group hug.
A huge THANK YOU to all the artists who made this experiment possible!
Please go to the project´s link on the left, to discover all the artists involved and their websites.
Also, don´t hesitate in stop the video at any time to randomly find some awesome character designs :)

I was invited to direct the official opener of the PICTOPLASMA FESTIVAL 2013 - White Noise Edition.
I had to paint about 300 frames in acrylics in no time. A really crazy experience!
It was used also as this year´s graphics for the festival.
