Croissant de Triomphe

This is the first of 17 shorts I Art Directed for the first season of Mickey Mouse Shorts. The 
loose, calligraphic line and off registered paint is sort of the default house style. I thought it would be nice to mix up things and vary the styles from time to time so as you can see, some shows feel vary different.  All, however, owe there inspiration from the classic modern art & animation from the 50's and 60's with a few even giving a nod to the 20's

Below are a few of the first designs and paintings I did to help establish the look for the show. This one was used in the production.
