Description:


    We wanted to produce a character piece with the flavor of animation as it might have been created in the thirties. We chose settings based on paintings by American painter Edward Hopper to depict the mood of the era. The Wurlitzer jukebox and the Duesenberg automobile were modeled using our new 3D Boolean software. Experimental particle software was used to generate a cloud of pepper.
