Around April of last year my friend, Jamie Vickers, encouraged Ben Li and I to apply to animate on Masaaki Yuasa’s “Space Dandy” episode. Yuasa-san was apparently looking for international animators and posted about it on his Facebook wall. We turned in our reels and promptly got the gig.
I decided to only take on four shots just to feel it out and to make sure I got it all in on time.
The Carpaccio animation and shadow passes weren’t used in the final cut, but I decided to include them for this post to show what was turned in and approved. The rest of the drawings I did came through though! Very exciting to see the final animation all cleaned up, colored and cut together.
Yuasa-san was very open to us using Flash to animate our shots. The production took the final keys (genga’s), printed them out, retraced onto paper and inbetweened those drawings. It’s a pretty wild pipeline, but it totally worked. I am grateful to have experienced working under one of my most favorite directors, Masaaki Yuasa-san.
If granted the opportunity I would like to do more animations for Yuasa-san and other overseas productions in the future. For now I will continue working on my personal project that I aim to get done before the end of the year.

My process for all the paisley armchair pictures. I sometimes forgot to save iterations regularly, so they’re a bit uneven (especially the blue one).
Sorted in the order they were made.
This is amazing to see! Thank you so much for sharing. It has totally put me in the mood to art today!

Reference sheet for a personal character. I have been drawing him a lot in recent illustrations.
