All this month you can catch a few black history month spots I did on Noggin and Nick Jr. I had the great pleasure of creating commercial spots showcasing African American inventors. When I get the green light from the network, I will post Hi res versions of the spots on my blog. In the meantime, you can get a peek of them HERE on the Nick jr website. Feel free to post comments below. I would love to get some feedback.

Here is my original character design lineup of all of these wonderful inventors.
From (L to R) Lonnie Johnson (Inventor of the Super Soaker), George Washington Carver (Inventor of Peanut Butter), Garrett Morgan (Inventor of the traffic signal), Alfred Cralle (Inventor of the Ice cream scooper), George Crum (Inventor of the potato chip), Jack Johnson (Inventor of the wrench)

This project gave me the great opportunity to experiment with a style I've been doing for some time. These are a few examples above. It's a real simple style that is a mix of my own with a little Abstract and a few other inspirations.

BTW, You can also see an additional spot I did for the network Celebrating Barack Obama and some of his favorite things.
Be sure to leave comments below.

George Washington Carver DID NOT INVENT peanut butter! While he did invent roughly 100 uses for peanuts, peanut butter was not one of them. That credit goes to Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Canada who created the process of milling peanuts into a paste for use in making confections. The modern peanut buuter was invented by Dr. Ambrose Straub who refined it further as a protien substitute for people without teeth and who could not eat meat.
