It goes back to 2015 when I got the chance to work on Illumination's "The Grinch". I've been part of the early stages of production, doing concept art and character design. It was a super exciting time, I had loads of fun and learned a lot.
Unfortunately, after 6 full months of character design, it was decided to put all my work to the bin and start again with a different direction. So non of these designs ended up in the movie. This was a bit frustrating, and I've been offered the opportunity to work on Despicable Me 3 so I left the project.
But I feel very lucky that they gave me the chance to work on these characters.
