Father's Day

It's almost Father's Day in the US and I'd almost forgotten this ecard I animated for American Greetings last year. I got to play around with the design on this and also storyboard the whole thing.

Here are some different lion cub designs we went through.
Final design, though his ears got smaller in the final build.
In the early stages we considered a range of cute baby animals. I would have liked to go with the little piggy but the lion won out in the end.
You can view the final card here.


  1. Yes, Fathers will be my second as a dad so I'm looking forward to it.

    I just watched the animated card and it's great. Job well done sir. Wonderfully cute character design!

  2. Great Characters Chris! Like you, I think the pig had the most interesting shaping too.

  3. very cool. love your animals!

  4. Dude, those are great! ;)

  5. haha, very sweet characters...

  6. Ooo I've never seen these before! Very cute! I like the piggy too, his little rosie cheeks and belly crack me up. :D
