Monsters Ink is still a work in progress. Playing off the Pixar movie Monster Inc. here is an animation about monsters with ink. Tattoos are starting to become more and more popular and acceptable in today’s society. Most everyone has one, including a lot of people at Wieden and Kennedy.
In my time at W+K I had a hard time meeting people. Not because I’m socially awkward (well, maybe a little), but because people are so busy. So, the way I see it, if I came to them with an ask, let say, will you be the voice of my cartoon monster, and talk about your tattoos? The response was, yeah, that sounds like it could be fun. This allowed me to meet some smart creative people, while getting to create something. It was a win—win.
This is a quick 40 second 'teaser' for an ongoing animation. Fellow 12er Eric helped bring life to these monsters with his animations skills. The voice talent is (in order of monster):
Caio Lazzuri, Megs Senk, Jared Elms, Blake Carrillo.
Here are some first round sketches for the monsters in the video.

Working with old spice was good clean fun (see what I did there?). I got to write some tweets and help come up with ideas for funny instagram images.
Here are some of my favorite lines that I came up with.
