Thinking of steering away from 3d for a moment, at the same time expressing our creativity in different styles of animation and showing what we would also love to work on , we have stumbled upon a new idea during a morning coffee.
With every next sip and smile the story and characters evolved and we found ourselves laughing more and more imagining loony animals puking each other out wanting to become vegetarians. From the first concepts of our silly new animal friends and all the way to everything else: coloring , animation , music and sounds , we were constantly tweaking story and characters back and forth to make good idea even better.
So, with coffee stains all over our desks from bursts of laughter and 4 week behind us, we proudly present you “Be a vegetarian”. We have enjoyed working on this piece and we hope you will enjoy watching it.

A short piece to promote the book Pincel de Zorro, now in its second edition, published by Ediciones Ondina. An illustrated tale from the Spanish author Sergio A. Sierra, Pincel de Zorro is a whimsical story set in Japan, full of tenderness, magic and sadness. The story is complemented by unique illustrations, all of which are hand drawn by Meritxell Ribas using a complex technique called grattage, in which paint is scraped off the canvas with a pointed tool.
Pincel de Zorro tells the tale of Shiori, a little girl whose life changes the same night her father brings home a dead fox from a hunting trip. Mysteriously when her parents decide to sell the precious skin of the animal, they receive a visit from a magical woman.
This project has been an amazing collaboration between my friends, Sergio and Meritxell, authors of the book, Albert Alay, the music composer, and me, taking the role of creative director. This has been a passion project of ours, done with no budget, and we hope that someday we can bring these wonderful characters to life in a feature film.

All illustrations were camera projected in C4D and composited in After Effects. The ink was generated with Turbulence 2D from Jawset. I used a Canon 5D MrkII to shoot the brush footage.
