The Powerhouse Animation team perfected the original storyboards, adding everything from beautifully painted touches to atmospheric animation. Their Injustice 2 campaign takes the highly polished quality of the team’s motion comics and combines it with the brevity necessary for internet ads.
The result: stunning, eye-catching banners. Powerhouse Animation used Photoshop to embellish the original client storyboards and paintings and then animated & finalized the scenes in After Effects, adding special effects and a high-level polish to each ad.
The New Ocean: The Fate of Life in a Changing Sea is a recently published book by Bryn Barnard. In the book, Bryn uses his surreal looking paintings in an attempt to address climate change. He focuses on six sea creatures and uses them to highlight how the children readers can take action to mitigate global warming.
Bryn describes the book as “a hard look at an uncomfortable topic in language that children can understand.”
Brian Allen created this silk-screen t-shirt illustration in tribute to the legendary Cheech & Chong characters from the movie, Up In Smoke.
Brian explains his process:
“I drew this artwork in Clip Studio Paint (Manga Studio 5) with a Wacom Cintiq. This is inspired by an illustration I created years ago – I wanted to test out my new skills, and design something that was more fitting for a t-shirt and filled out the front more (the previous design was too square). I also wasn’t happy with the likeness of the characters in the first design, so I drew everything from the ground up, and added a lot of elements from the films and really tried to do my best to capture the spirit of these legends.”
Jannie Ho collaborated with publisher Nosy Crow on her recent release from the Violet Rose children’s book series. The book, Violet Rose and the Summer Campout, features activities, paper crafts, and stickers to make for a fun summer activity book.
Conceptopolis created these illustrations for the recent Baby Bestiary book release. The book is described as “the first exploration of a new kind of adventure, the raising of young monsters to become loyal companions, beloved friends or fearsome guardians.”
Brian Allen was commissioned by the Boy Scouts of America to create these illustrations.
Brian elaborates about the project:
“I was thrilled recently to work with Boy Scouts of America illustrating their Bear, Wolf, and Tiger mascots for a catalog that went out to all troops nationwide.
We created illustrations that blended real studio photos of kids in Boy Scouts gear and drawn into a comic book background. The marketing team hired me to reinvent the existing mascot illustrations in my own style. I was a Cub Scout long ago, so it was a lot of fun to leave a little mark on the organization.”
