Various designs for a speculative feature, working closely with Fernando Ortigas and my very dear friend John Martin who sadly passed away quite recently. He was a pleasure to work with and always pushed for quality in all the projects. John was mostly based in the Philippines and helped in many ways to shape the animation industry in Manila. After his death the animation industry clubbed together with the help of Fernando Ortigas and formed a special tribute to John and named him as mentor in animation with his very own John Martin award which will be given each year to winners of excellence in the field of animation. John will be sadly missed.

This design for one of the popes in the film was loosely based on one of the pub owners in Manila, a friend of Nando and Johns.

Possibly one too many beers.
Here's an example of the John Martin award, I'm sure John's turning in his grave at the mere thought of this! still he deserves nothing less.
