This is a selection of visual development, storyboards and matte paintings from my work on the Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl. I was Senior Concept Designer for the entire film creating new background art in the film style and also new art and animation for the musical numbers (The images on this page were created while working for Mousetrappe and are the property of Mousetrappe).
