Boston Red sox / wally's opening day
Wally's Opening Day is an Emmy Award-winning animated special for the Boston Red Sox, produced by Take The Cake Productions and Hero4Hire Creative. It follows Wally the Green Monster and his friends on their adventures from spring training in sunny Florida to the dicey task of preparing Fenway Park for Opening Day.
I art directed this project! Mountains of character designs, prop designs, hands down the most backgrounds I've ever drawn in my life ... let's just say a lot of hot dogs and Cracker Jacks were consumed by the time Opening Day rolled around. We had an incredibly talented, dedicated team that made this monster of a challenge a reality. As a Boston resident for over a decade, bringing my love for the city and the magic of Fenway Park to life was quite a treat. Private tours of Fenway, to meeting the groundskeeping team, to ... well, winning an Emmy. Gosh. Let's GO Red Sox!
