Peace Show

These are some preliminary sketches, studies and motion doodles for our Peace exhibit in October. This is a joint project between Yasu Suzuka, Judy Umana, Rulo.cl and myself. The theme is Peace, however our idea is about how easily peace can be broken through distraction. Our professor Suzuka Sensei has become the character for this project, so in these sketches, various symbols of peace will disrupt his meditation.

The elephant is a symbol of peace in Thailand. These animations were drawn in Flash. Thanks Victor for the tips!!

In many parts of the world the dove is a symbol of peace (but just like it’s dirty cousin, the pigeon, it won’t hesitate to poop on you).

A couple of pages from my sketch book. Here are some quick dove drawings.
