Hard Rock Cafe - "Our Other Rock Stars"

Commercial for "Hard Rock Cafe":
Working under director Henry Hobson was great, especially since I'm a fan of his work on movie titles. I've admired quite a few featured on Art of the Title. Some of the coolest treats come out of sticking around for the credits to "Rango" and also the sequence for "Sherlock Holmes".
Not to mention the great and eerie "Walking Dead" intro too.

For this spot, it starts off all mysterious slightly dark until it takes a turn to make the viewer...hungry. I think we did have some good burgers for lunch working on this project.
Stayed pretty analog for this one-- ketched in pencil and Copic Marker Neutral gray makers:

MLB2K12 - Kate Upton in "Finger Mechanics" and "Verlander on Verlander"

Recent promo commercials for MLB2K12 from 2K Sports.

There were a few of spots in this series showing what it takes to play a perfect game and make it into the "Perfect Club". Cy Young Award winner and MVP Justin Verlander takes center stage in most of these, with appearances by players CJ Wilson, Jay Bruce, and David Price.
Jeremy Konner directed (of "Drunk History" awesomeness) and gave great notes to knock these all out fast.

This first one features Kate Upton-- recently featuring on some magazine called Sports Illustrated Swimsuit's cover...

I think my rushed drawings of her are likely to be met with disapproval by the throngs of her oggling fans, but quite a fun one to board out though~ Will post more when the longer "Perfect Club" spot featuring disguises and panthers airs.
