Honda asked o2 to do a series of videos showcasing Honda's efforts to make the world a better place. The first video takes a look back at Honda's past inventions and history, and towards the future of Honda. It is meant to inspire creativity, innovation and thinking big. This video was placed on their website and on youtube. I did the illustrations, art direction, concepting and storyboarding for this project along with Cleve Smith (art director), Ian David (copywriter), Chris Cox (art director) and Fivestone Studios (animation).
The second video is an environmental video to help show the world what measures Honda is taking to make the world cleaner and greener. Certain initiatives include the Honda FCV (now the Claris), the Honda Smart Home, the new Intelligent Paint Booth, etc.
This story is about the sun, who, upon looking at the earth is very sad at the state of things. Pollution, trash, carelessness. Until a small girl skips across him and shows him what Honda is doing to change things and the hope for the future. The initiatives he sees helps him find his way back to the clean blue sky.
With over 200 hours of watercolor painting and photoshop work in this video, I am proud to say this is one project that is very close to my heart. Unfortunately, some of the scenes weren't able to get quite finished so I have included some of the art that got cut below the video. enjoy!

We developed a concept for Buffalo Rock to get their Ginger Ale into more local bars in Birmingham, AL. We created coasters with classic ginger ale drinks on the front and a version on the back with a new name and recipe to showcase the spicy kick of Buffalo Rock Ginger Ale.
