The History of Coffee

  • History of Coffee:
    Illustrations and Design for a Short Animation.

    A long time ago, in my last year as a motion designer in the magnificent SMOG studio, I had the mission to design, illustrate and animate a couple of scenes for this animated short that tells the true history behind the world's most popular beverage.  
    The History of Coffee tells the legend of Kaldi, an ethiopian goat herder who noticed that after eating the berries from a certain tree, his goats became so energetic that they did not want to sleep at night.
