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.
train car #8: Kate Middleton & Kate Upton
this clip used 48 frames, about twice as many as any previous one. I’m trying to offset the internal frame cycles as much as possible to make the motion a bit more organic.
The castle is Windsor Castle and the iceberg is from Kate Upton’s Sports Illustrated cover shoot.
