Albuquerque Comic Expo

The Project

The Albuquerque Comic Expo requested a video bumper to use for all their promotions. I came up with something that could be a celebration of comic book cultures past and present.

The Event

ACE is an annually hosted event regarded as New Mexico’s finest convention for comic books, pop culture, and entertainment. Each year, fans, celebrities, and vendors gather for three days of panels, attractions, exhibits, and more.



The goal for this bumper was to give ACE a strong connection to the comic book fan base. So, I built up their brand with comic book cornerstones: Krak, Pow, and Kaboom!

Frame by Frame

I wanted viewers to pine for the olden days of comics. So, when it came to animating the bumper, I did each frame by hand… on paper. That’s right, classic animation with no corners cut.

Multi-Purpose Media

I didn’t just design one version of the ACE bumper. While using the same color and style, I developed multiple versions that varied in timing to allow ACE full control of where to place it in their promotions.
