Polar Express Elves




On 'The Polar Express', I did LOTS of illustrations of kids in pyjamas, but here are a few elves. They ended up deciding to make them look like little old men, sort of like some of the munchkins from the Wizard of OZ, but we didn't know that yet.

I have Santas, and reindeer stuff to post from Polar Express coming soon. These are all scanned from color photocopies (as is all the film work on this blog), because as illustrators for the film industry, we don't get to keep our work. The originals were in watercolor and colored pencil. As everybody starts to work digitally, the print will be the original of course, so it won't be of much consequence.
