Arthur Christmas Opens Nov. 23, 2011!
When Sony Pictures Animation partnered with Aardman Animations to work on Arthur Christmas more than three years ago, the studio assigned me to work with director Sarah Smith for a couple of months and had the privilege of working with Scott Caple, George Hull and Francois Audouy to develop the early concept designs for the film. Above is the earliest drawing I did having Santa and his elves in the mission control. I had a concept where elves come in different breeds, short and tall. More to come next week...
By the way, the art of book is out, too:
