Every Monday through Friday morning for the past 4 years, I have gotten an email from my friend, Pascal. In fact, I have an entire folder dedicated to Pascal Campion with over 1,000 e-mails. And in each email is an attached image. It's his "Sketch of the Day (SOTD)." Every SOTD is a story that Pascal tells with his amazing talent.
Pascal has thousands of fans following his SOTD, but if you ask him, he'll tell you that they are not fans, they are all his friends. That is just the type of person he is.
This video is a glimpse into his process and his insight. Watch as he translates emotion into art.
Thanks for watching!

Joseph Robertson was an infantryman in the U.S. Army during World War II, where he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. The stark black and white images in this short haunt the viewer, just as Robertson is haunted by his memories from that battle.

"In 1903, Olivia Wright was the first to pilot the great grasshoppers of North America."
While taking my kids to the playground, I shot live-action footage of a grasshopper, using my iPhone.
This is one of many short animated clips I've made for fun. I might continue this particular clip as an Insect Aviation series... who knows :)
It was my first project using TV Paint animation software. (No rotoscoping used. Where's the fun in that?!) My work-in-progress can be found on my blog: animatingforfun.com.
