I recently had the pleasure of working on an add campaign for the Massachusetts Audubon Society. My college roommate works as a designer for Full Contact Advertising and when they got the client he convinced them to hire an illustrator (thanks Kevin!). I grew up in rural Massachusetts and spent a whole bunch of my childhood roaming about different Audubon wildlife sanctuaries and I really treasure those memories so it was a real honor to be a part of this project.
Basically my job was to illustrate different landscapes and animals in different states of movement and then the guys at Full Contact would animate them. It was a little different than the work I have been doing because everything had to be scientifically accurate, but it was a nice change of pace.
Here are some of my sketches of a Ruby Throated Hummingbird in flight:
And here is the final animation
Here are some more sketches for the Monarch Butterfly
