Laika's "The Boxtrolls"

Hello to those who still hang around here, despite the lack of updates...again.
Since the begining of the year, I've been really busy with my personal life, including an upcoming house move, and working on projects I won't be able to show anything from before a few more years (this is one of the thing about working in animation).
I'm so busy that I don't really have free time to draw for myself. But it will change before the end of the year, eventually. I shall then move to tumblr to keep up with the modern world.

Anyway, yesterday was released the teaser for Laika's next feature, "The Boxtrolls", on which I've worked as a character designer early on, in 2010-2011. I'll be able to show some of it after it comes a year (By that time, I'll have 4 years old drawings to show...haha!).
It's been interesting to see what stayed of my work, what's gone, what changed and how it has evolved into these beautifully animated puppets that the geniuses at Laika make so well.

I can't wait to see the finished film as the story is great!

Have a yummy 2013 everyone! 

The original painting was made for my friends Suzanne and Max's little girl, Lulu, who likes red&blue monsters, to hang in her room. Véro made an other picture with the other half of her name to hang next to it.
Being a lazy and shameless animal, I've reused the monster for my New year card...
