Yes, Virginia

Wednesday, November 24th 2010 by Pat

Ok ok ok. Maybe this is too much tinsel and corn syrup to be ladling on before Thanksgiving but I’m excited to see that our friend, Bill Sneed, did the lead character design work for the upcoming Christmas Special, “Yes, Virginia.”


The character will also appear in gigantic balloon form for the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade. That’s a pretttty cool thing for a designer to see their work floating through New York City streets.

Billy also dabbles in an occasional non-Christmas themed animation. I love this music video for “Ohio” by Outside Royalty.

It’s even better because the producer credit goes to Jody MacKinnon, one of my first and dearest childhood friends. Jody bolted from Juneau right after high school and people are always asking me what she’s been doing.. apparently producing amazing music videos!
