Below is a the new kickass spot I've been working on the past few weeks over at Big Star for this upcoming season of AMC's Preacher! We did this completely by hand, no CGI or rotoscope assistance - long live 2D animation! Very big shout out to our awesome 2D team on this one: Carol Cai, Mavis Huang, Blake PatrickEfrain Cintron, Will Pittas and Jane Wu

Big Star has also released a cool behind the scenes look at how we brought these characters to life.
