Hector Herrera is a designer, director and animator whose fun, bright work is playful and electric. His creative work largely takes the shape of commercials and broadcast graphics, with past clients including Cartoon Network, Spike TV and BBC.
He recently created a Scout Book featuring his playful illustration, as a departure from on-screen formats. The two books, in fact, celebrate the art of the physical creative process, encouraging users to write and sketch. Herrera is also an instructor in the illustration program at the Ontario College of Art and Design, and we imagine that “draw” and “sketch” are two directives he gives his students!
Herrera made the series as holiday gifts for his clients, a varied group of writers, directors, animators, and producers. The design is based loosely on a character design he’s working on for an upcoming animated short.
Be sure to check out Hector’s illustrative creative work and see how he translated his dimensional, screen-based work to the tactile, inky format of the Scout Book.
And don’t forget! Write! Sketch!
