This is an experimental perspective of dreams and nightmares. It represents the times when you may be in a dream that you'd really like to wake up from yet you can't seem to find your way out. The opportunity may appear but with the illusions of a dream it only drags you deeper.
These are two :15 animated promos for Nick Jr. based on a child's imaginative VO recording. The goal was to capture the essence of childhood creativity and education. Children want to play, laugh, and learn through new experiences that help them grow and understand how our world works.
An important aspect of children is their innocence and lack of need for perfection. If something is already perfect than where's the opportunity to grow? Inspired by the inconsistencies and natural forms of clay, I was able to design environments that capture this child's imagination as if he were to build it himself.
Album art for artist, Conor Duffy. Album: Don't Be Afraid of Dragons
Most fantasies depict dragons as evil beings breathing fire and destroying kingdoms. Like all other creatures, dragons have feelings, families, and a desire for peace so why must they be evil? As humans we fear things that could be seen as a threat and I think a giant, flying creature would be one of them. As humans expand throughout Earth of course they'd come across the home of a dragon and have the motive to take their land, calling them the invaders. Really, they're only giant, territorial beings protecting themselves like all other animals. Let them be.
