Animated Christmas Cards

GPD Group – “The Gang’s Christmas Eve”

Not unlike the many families who send pictures of themselves to their loved ones, GPD Group celebrates the season with custom-produced animated cartoons starring members of their corporate family: their executives and practice leaders.

Each year since 2001, this colorful cast of caricatures (which now numbers over 30) is placed in a different setting that invokes merriment — often some sort of pop-culture parody. I’ve had the privilege of animating every one of these cartoons, originally at Enterprise Information Services in Akron (GPD was our next door neighbor) but since 2007 as a freelance contributor.
