H.B. Lewis

H.B. Lewis

HB Lewis has worked on big blockbuster animated movies such as Lilo and Stitch, Madagascar, Robots, Ratatouille, Cars and Ice Age. He has also illustrated six published children's books.

I found it fascinating to look at his production sketches for these 3D animated films. They capture a richness and texture, as well as a color palatte, that seems to translate directly into the cleaner animation style of the finished movie. The designs themselves are very unique also. I especially like, in the robot and alien designs for their respective movies, how the characters seem to be very shape/silhouette inspired, conforming to strange/unique contours.
