Happy Holidays

This is an animated video I did as part of CNN’s 12 days of Christmas.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.  For some reason, animation and holidays go together pretty naturally.  Maybe because there are not too many partridges in pear trees in the real world.  My colleague Bruno DeGazio did the music and we both sang (very badly) in his recording studio.

Political Animations

In addition to my political cartoons I am now producing animations based on current events.  Though things come and go real fast so animation has to be timely and you have to be willing to spend more hours and less payoff if a subject material has passed its freshness date.  I was a few days late with the Egyptian uprising, but I hope this has captured the mood and sentiment in Egypt…
