X-Men Apocalypse’s Promotional Campaign

To celebrate the release of X-Men: Apocalypse, 20th Century Fox invited artists, animators and GIF artists from around the world to create an animated artwork inspired by the film’s battle between the X-Men and Apocalypse and his Four Horsemen.

This is my artwork for X-Men: Apocalypse. The general mood is inspired by “The calm before the storm”; the main imagery is about a burning world being destroyed by war. The focus is on the most instantly recognizable characters and Apocalypse with his four horsemen. I drew the characters so that they are appealing to new and longtime fans.

Jarryd James’ “This Love” Animated Artwork

Having released a number of new tracks in 2015, Jarryd James invited filmmakers, artists and graphic designers from around the world to create short videos inspired by his lyrics and his songs.

I interpreted the song “This Time” by Jarryd James as a burning torch. The song is tinted by sadness and lost. I illustraded love as a flame. Sadness and lost are represented by the fire and the darkness. The love burns away in a shadowy and blurred environment. Nevertheless, I wanted to give hope and light. My artwork also tells the story of a new love rising gently from the ashes as a delicate flower.

Desiigner’s Panda Promotional Campaign

Universal Music Group invited filmmakers and animators from around the world to create an engaging 6-second video inspired by hip hop artist Desiigner’s track “Panda”.

For this animated artwork, I took inspiration from the raw story of the song. I created something brutal and violent like the lyrics, yet it has a playful “panda cartoon” feel to it. I included the title and key lyrics as hashtags.

Music Video for “Faded” by Marc E Bassy

To bring his new music to life, Marc E. Bassy invited filmmakers and animators from around the world to create a lyric video for one of two of his latest tracks in 2015.

This musical artwork is a lyric video for “Faded” by Marc E Bassy. As requested, the main visual reference is Marc E Bassy’s current aesthetic inspired by Roy Lichtenstein. In this video, I wanted to push further Marc’s reference to the art world. I used Roy Lichtenstein’s Ben-Day dots, Andy Warhol’s bold colors and Stephen Sprouse’s graffiti signature. I also wanted to recreate the feeling of being “Faded” and dazed. The objective was to have a video that looked groggy and disoriented.

Johnny Stimson’s Promotional Campaign

For the release of his EP, Johnny Stimson’s shared his single “You Can’t Save Me”. He invited visual artists from around the world to create short videos and animated GIFs inspired by the song and its lyrics.

I wanted to bring out the darker side of the lyrics. Death and love are being contrasted in this artwork. This project was also about creating a character for Johnny Stimson.

Music Video for “Rock Bottom” by Hailee Steinfeld

To celebrate the release of Hailee Steinfeld’s EP HAIZ, filmmakers, motion artists, designers and animators from around the world were invited to select one of the tracks and create a video that visually captures the mood of the music.

This visual artwork is for the song “Rock Bottom” by Hailee Steinfeld. I created a video that visually captures the mood of the music. I wanted something red. Red, the color of love and hate, life and death. The visualizer is synchronized to the lyrics and to the main beats of the song. The final artwork is abstract, poetic and powerful.
