jumping bean

this is one from the vaults..from 1995 to 2000 i was nesting at Richard Purdum Productions here in london,
animating and designing commercials etc,,drinking a lot of tea and getting passed strange books and cds from a mr small..(more on that fellow later..)
tiger aspect productions asked the studio to come up with character concepts for the top secret mr-bean animated show they were developing at that time.
these were a few of my designs..sort of an odd upa thing..
i continued working on commercials when this project was in the studio,but was asked to animate the dancing bean for the end credits 30 sec-one shot-fun to do.
this scene is in the animation section of my site-

Hello to you Gary! I don't know if you will remember me (Arna) but in 2001 spring I was at Purdums storyboarding on Bean and sat in the same room as Alan Kerswell for six weeks. Please say hello to Alan K next time you see him! We will come back and visit your delightful blog again soon. Cheers from Canada!

Ahhh! I love it here….your blog n you works…
I used to see Mr. Bean everynight here at my place on cartoon network. Loved the way you guys did the job…you all really got Rowans Atkins true image on the cartoon show…all his gestures are so true to nature…
Keep up the good effort…
