"John Henry" (2000)

This film was unique in that the style dictated the use of sketchy, broken line work, with obvious construction; a complete reversal of the tight, clean line that characterized most Disney films from the 1990's "Renaissance".

In this clip, I animated everything but the human characters. The clip shows final frames, followed by pencil tests.

Semi-related: To anyone from the MTV generation of the 1980's- remember that cool, animated, sketchy A-Ha video???
