HongKong Christmas!

Happy Holidays Everyone!
I’ve been working on this project since late summer and finally it’s done!
It’s a holiday installation in a department store in Hong Kong.
I designed the background and the characters, and some products for their holiday season.  Here are some pictures and the original sketches!

It’s a very interesting feeling when you design something in 2D on paper, then it goes out of your hands and someone else fabricate them in 3D life size installation.  I have never seen my characters in life size which I’m super excited about! Hope kids in HongKong will enjoy this decorations!!!

If you know anyone in Hong Kong please pass it along.
Here are the info:
