Based on the positive response of my Grand Budapest Hotel pattern, I’ve decided to continue with the back catalog of Wes Anderson films. I will do them in reverse chronological order, so Moonrise Kingdom is next.
Here’s a peek into my sketchbook, and the process I use to create the assets for the pattern. There are some tactical decisions such as separating the tires from the bike (visible from frame 4 to 5). You can also see how some ideas are altered or entirely nixed along the way (air-siren replaced by fishing net).
People usually wonder how long things like this take, so I am keeping track of my hours as I go. So far I’ve spent just over 10 hours, including watching the movie.
I am currently working on series of labels for a line of cafe syrups. This is the custom alphabet I created for the project.
train car #9: The Kids
My favorite kids from 2013 were Robby Novak [Kid President] with his priceless advice for America and Miles Skott [Batkid] who probably had the best Make a Wish event in history.

I couldn’t be more stoked on being asked to submit this to the upcoming Kid President book; look for it when it’s out!
