Giant's Causeway illustrations for Terra X

These are some of the illustrations I did for the German television broadcaster ZDF and the program "Terra X". In this episode there were stories about natural phenomenons and mysteries. I illustrated the story about the giants Fionn and Benanndonner which is quite funny. Therefore I did many different scenes that were digitally set on a big tableau so the camera could hover over it during the narrator telling the story.

First scene: Fionn is building the causeway to get to Benanndonner.
