Alrighty, here's my preceding "Cat" post: We teamed up with Olympic champion Fritz Strobl and Red Bull design mastermind Rob Rottensteiner to create the "Fritz the Fritz" character. I for one was hired on for art direction/bgs/titles and character design, Rob for story development and for his skills in coolness :) After some editing on the colour design and stuff we're quite happy with the outcome and the project's progress. I'll keep you updated...

BG colours: I felt quite inspired by an opening pan of the 1940 Warner Bros. short film Bedtime For Sniffles [»]. A short while ago, Hans Bacher posted two wonderfully recreated bg pieces of it over here [»].
