Go See Cloudy!

Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs opens today. I saw it earlier this week and was blown away. I am always impressed when I can see the filmmaker’s thumbprint on the final picture.


In designing the characters, we envisioned the simplicity of Miroslav Sasek’s illustrations combined with the charm of the Muppets. We were constantly trying to simplify our shapes, and exaggerate the expression. The animators on the film did an amazing job of maintaining this style throughout the film. Here are some character designs.

Fantastic designs Pete! I was amazed at how well these were translated into 3d, and how the characters moved according to their design! definitley my favorite 3d film. Also, I love how the first thing you see is the big shapes, and only later the detail. usually in CG the first thing that pops to your eyes is the surface detail.

I have "The Art of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" and I've seen your artwork in it.

Hey Pete,

I just stumbled upon your blog, and it's fantastic. I then started reading your interview with the character design blog. I read the first few paragraphs and my jaw dropped cause you went to LMU.

I am currently a senior animation major at LMU, how long ago did you attend school here?!?!

It's so cool that you went to LMU. Great Work!!!
