I know, right? A few tweaks (and proprietary conversations) later, and we have a corporate mascot!
I then designed a few more characters and illustrated some keyframes, before sending them off to be animated by the guys at Resolution Post, resulting in these two commercials, which are now running in Baltimore and Knoxville, TN!
Look ma, I'm on the teevee!
