Inspirations for my one minute video:

Horrible Histories - style of a show; presents a serious historical events (sometimes really cruel and bloody in a funny way), which allows it to be watched by kids and teenagers.

Kung Fu Panda - Story of Po's Childhood

Parts of above sequence are done in 2D (After Effects and Flash), colorful and stylized. Another good example of what I'd like to achieve is a end credit animation from Kung Fu Panda 2.

What I really like about it is the simplicity, use of bright colors, stylization and quirky animation. Moreover, this type of animations is getting used more and more often in end credits in many animated feature films (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Wreck-it Ralph and many more).

Illustration inspirations:
Hannah Christenson - great style, amazing colors and details.

 Lorena Alvarez G√≥mez - beautiful colors, quirky characters.
Nicholas Kole - great character designs, some of them made specially for animation. Colorful and simple, strong silhouettes.
Nelson Atmos - style, traditional marker sketches.
Enrique Fernandez- character stylization, range of dynamic poses, use of colors
