Back in 2007 I was approached by E4 (UK TV channel) to produce a series of Christmas idents. E4 are great fun to work with - no real tight limitations - just the opportunity to make short, irreverent spots.
Here's some sketches for main characters - an old lady named Granta Clores and her low tech method of crap present distribution. The colour sketch of the old lady was by Adam Cootes, an incredibly talented character designer and animator at Aardman. He helped out as time got tighter and tighter and he set the animation tone for the spots.
