The world’s longest running children’s series.  On this series I developed a new method of painting backgrounds during the show’s transition to digital production.  The backgrounds were previously painted in watercolour, and my technique imitates this style to continue the show’s legacy. I also developed colour palettes for all new backgrounds in this series, and painted a collection of featured backgrounds.


This season of Arthur was nominated for two Emmy Awards including Outstanding Children’s Animated Program.  Now screening on PBS, ABC and Netflix.
