Although I know I’m not the only one anxiously awaiting any word about Furry Water, I can certainly understand why Rafael Grampá isn’t hunched over a drawing board, banging out comics pages 10 hours a day: He’s kept busy by other, certainly more glamorous projects.
There’s that Nike commercial, and that deal with Absolut vodka that’s seen Grampá star in a television and print campaign, and design a limited-edition bottle. Now, as part of that same arrangement, he’s featured in a new TV spot and print ad for Next Frame (below), a project sponsored by Absolut in which people can help Grampá to create a 3D-animated short film, which will premiere March 14 in Berlin.
Beginning Feb. 3 on Absolut’s Facebook page, Grampá will update the film daily, based on suggestions from others. He’ll share his progress from his studio throughout the process.
