Nate Wragg, Ratatouille Credits

Many of you who've seen Pixar's Ratatouille have mentioned how much you love the end credits of the movie. I've been checking out Nate Wragg's illustration blog for awhile, but I just made the connection that he was one of the key artists behind the credits animation. I think a lot of it came from the concept art he did for the film. He talks a little about it in this post:
Everything was animated by hand, and since we wanted such a painterly look on the finished animation, we had to paint all the animation in a futuristic old fashioned way, all in the computer, but frame by frame in photoshop with no cheats or short cuts. Unfortunately we didn't get to use any cell painting gloves, maybe next time.
