Client Sharpie



Annual ID



Sharpie and UNINTERRUPTED brought us on board for this series about the stories behind messages athletes write on their shoes. The animation is woven into interviews with three athletes - Ja Morant, Rob Gronkowski and Bobby Wagner. The animation is drawn in a rough, Sharpie-like line quality. The drawings are in constant motion, an ode to the rogue style the Sharpie marker brings to mind. The storytelling style is purposefully humorous, at times absurd/surreal, at other times leaning into the gloomy memories of these athletes' childhood stories. These spots were made to live on social media and Youtube, as quirky content-bites for Sharpie in collaboration with UNINTERRUPTED (LeBron James' agency).

My Role was:

My role was to design/illustrate all style-frames for three commercial spots. Created at //kneeon studios in Brooklyn under the creative direction of Mike Healey. Animated by Arthur Guttilla, //kneeon, with additional animation by me.
