Getting Weird at Lucha Libre

  • This was for a Thrillist piece about Lucha Libre, a Mexican tradition of masked wrestlers, and how watching them fight was like a "live action comic book." So I designed and animated some intro sequences to make them look right at home in any super hero splash page.  It was a fun challenge to have each scene match the characters' persona that the wrestlers have spent a career cultivating.
  • "TEAM USA" were the arrogant villains, so their intro had to be over the top.
