After living in Europe for so long, it is a huge contrast to have architecture be purely functional.

There is no room for ornamentation here, but in a way I really like it, it allows for bolder abstractions of things.

I found myself thinking about lighting in a more cinematographic way, closer to live action, while staying within a cartoony style set by the previous Madagascar films. A word of caution though, there may be some spoilers below, although nothing that won´t let you fully enjoy the movie. I also wanted to push the contrast by having bright snow next to very dark water.

These were some concept keys for lighting the villain´s introduction.

Last year I had the immense pleasure and honor to work on a collective illustrated book of the declaration of WOMEN’s rights.

It collects the articles in the 1791 declaration by Olympe de Gouges, as well as the 1967 United Nations declaration on the elimination of discrimination against women.

The book has already attracted warm praise from established names like Amy Bloom and Barbara Gowdy.

‘The unforgettable prose is moody, shape-shifting, provocative and always as compelling as a strong light at the end of a road you hesitate to walk down…but will’ (Amy Bloom) and ‘Kathy Page is a massive talent: wise, smart, very funny and very humane’ (Barbara Gowdy).

I worked mostly doing a lot of color keys which you will find here, working closely with the layout department and set designers.

I had to be a lot more specific about my lighting ideas than I usually am, so you will see my illustrations are pushed a lot further than usual.

Thank you so much Gérald Guerlais for inviting me to be a part of this wonderful project, and congratulations to all fellow artists who did such gorgeous work on it.
