Run Ginger Run away

Above: Inspirational sketches by my two good pals Nate, and Ean Moretti.

The above animals are for the infamous race/ chase sequence of the film... I wanted a different look for this sequence... something creative and fun... Nate and Ean didn't let me down. We just finished the animation, and it's really fun to watch... Thanks fellahs! -tod

Visitors from far lands

Above:Poul, Salvador, and Ingo at "The Monk"

Salvador came for a month earlier this year to help with boards and layout. Now he is directing the other project in the studio... a 60 min commercial! He just returned from Spain this week... his paddle pop in hand. All three of these fine gentleman have added so much to the Gingerbread Man. It's been a fun time. -tod

Background Sprinkles

Both Chanya and Susanne finished up the BGs this last weekend... it was great to have them both involved... and they added so much to the production. Susanne finished up around 70 or so backgrounds... giving a nice graphic artsy look to my keys... and Chanya focused on logos, prop textures... and all the other bits and bobs that needed designing. Thanks to both of you! - Tod

Title wave

-Susanne and I are working on the title sequence of the film... trying to get a more "water-colory" style... above are two "tests" ... basically not finished art... just taking stabs trying to get the right feel... mixing her painting, my painting... and borrowing examples of things for inspiration. Still a ways to go... but getting there... tod

Shaw This

Above: George Bernard Shaw

-GBS was a huge inspiration for the storyteller character in GBM. He was such a character himself... and had such charisma, confidence, and was such a great storyteller. Below are some more development sketches by the fantastic Maahir Pandie. The storyteller uses his hands a lot in the film... so it was important that they have character as well. - Tod
