'Home' Part 1

About 6 years ago I was asked to join the team for a film named ‘Smekday’ to help create the initial conceptual character art that excited the top exec's at Dreamworks as well and get the project eventually green lit. Years later, the project was re-named ‘Home’. I worked primarily on the human characters and a few very quick thoughts for the little alien OHH..... While my partner in crime Tony Siruno did some absolutely stunning designs and the majority of the concepts for all of the aliens. I was also lucky to work with amazing artist such as Emil Mitev and Griselda Lemay.

I was very inspired and excited to design a young African American girl as the main character. I was even more inspired when early talks with Rihanna began to voice the main character. I tried to get her essence and coolness into the design of an 8 year old.
