A couple of stills from a pitch.  We didn't get the job, but it was fun to make some new illustrations.  It was also a super short turnaround, so we got a little help from our friend, Vanessa Sweet.  She designed the Santa character on the bottom image.  Thanks, VEE

Ahco on the Road

Ahco is finally here!  It all started with Soyeon's first draft storyboard back in 1997, followed by a production that took place (on and off) until now.  It was a long road!  Thanks to everyone for the generous support and help along the way.

You can check out more on the production of this film at Soyeon's blog: soyeonkim-yellowshed.blogspot.com
