The squeakiest roar

As soon as I read about the loveable Bapoto and his squeaky roar I had a strong idea of the illustration style I wanted to create. My inspiration came from the calm feel of the narrative which I thought complimented a more precise approach to the illustration style.

The designs were all created in Illustrator with a canvas overlay to soften the vector style.

I'm proud to say this animation won 1st Prize, for Best Animated Short Film at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival, 2012.
