EL TIGRE BGs!

I had the pleasure and honor of working with two of my heroes and idols, Jorge Gutierrez and Sandra Equihua on season 2 of TV's best kept secret, El Tigre! Working on that show was a dream come true for me and a great learning experience. Along with Jorge and Sandra I got to work with some of the top talent in animation and for that I am both humbled and grateful.

So finally Nickelodeon has decided to start airing the 2nd season and I can finally post some of the background painting I did on the show. I'm not sure who worked on which BGs but the incredibly talented team that helped create them were: Art Directors Jerry De Jesus and Roman Laney and BG designers Katrien Verbiest, Joseph Holt and Kyle Neswald. Then I tried really hard not to ruin the awesome job they did.

Enjoy!


The destroyed city BG above was actually the test I took to get the job on El Tigre. I was very excited when I found out they were going to use my test as one of the BGs on the show, and that I was going to get paid for it!

I'm convinced part of the reason that Nickelodeon green lit that show was to woo you over from CN.

Mr. Hollywood with your gold medallions and porcelain veneers and well manicured eyebrows.

It seems different countries, different cultures, we really can decide things in the same understanding of the difference!
