Félicie Haymoz spent a whole year designing the human characters for Isle of Dogs, a stop-motion-animated science-fiction film written, produced and directed by Wes Anderson. A year of daily email exchanges with the filmmaker in Paris she created the characters set in a dystopian near-future Japan.

In this exhibition, a variety of references and design process behind some of her favorite characters from the movie together with original puppets are shown.

Born in Switzerland the artist lives in Brooklyn and is a wellknown designer creating a wide variety of characters and concept art for stop­motion­, digital 3d­ and cut­out animation productions.
