On Friday 25th July, Cloth Cat had some exciting visitors at the studio: children’s illustrator Sebastien Braun and his lovely family! They came down to have a look at the work we’re doing for Toot the Tiny Tugboat, our new animated series based on Sebastien’s picture book ‘Toot and Pop’.
Sebastien’s story is about a little tugboat who helps a huge ship, and this idea has been expanded and developed by Lupus Films to create a new preschool series full of nautical characters and harbour adventures. Cloth Cat have been animating Toot the Tiny Tugboat since April, so we had plenty of work to share.
During the animation process, we’ve worked hard to preserve the original qualities of Sebastien’s illustration style – neat bold lines, bright colours, sketch-like toning and characters with charm. It was also a special treat for the Cloth Cat animators to see some of Sebastien’s original artwork up close.
Thanks so much for coming to visit us, Seb and family – hope you enjoyed the show!
