One Small Step...

I started on "Flushed Away" a month after I graduated Art Center and spent the next 3 years working on it alongside a lot of other great designers/artists(POV, Scott Wills, David James, Max Boas, et al). One of the highlights was the Jammy Dodger mark II, a late addition to the story which I ended up getting to pitch the final design to Jeffrey Katzenberg. It didn't quite work out properly in the film(it was designed as a hydrofoil so it would gradually rise out of the water but in the film it magically hovered once the skis deployed).
