'Sloppy Joe' production notes

Here is the pitch material: rough thumbnail sketches and 2 style frames.

Process: Character was re-designed to match the graphic style of title sequence based on Aubry's original character design. Textures were hand-painted using acrylic and watercolor, applied into photoshop file. Then, all elements were imported in Adobe After Effects in 3D space. Joe character was animated in After Effects as well as jointed puppet.
Last shot of 2d hand drawn animation was done by Aubry: re-use of Sloppy Joe's drinking shot from the main sequence.

Here is an image I made for the Sloppy Joe website: link to the crew image (of myself)
