An Animated & Illustrated Version of Breaking Bad’s Opening Credits

Breaking Bad - Illustrated by Martin Woutisseth

In three month’s time, French animator and graphic designer Martin Woutisseth created a series of character and scenery illustrations from the AMC television show Breaking Bad and brought them all together in his fantastic animated makeover of the opening credits. We previously wrote about Martin and his work when he created an animated filmography of Tim Burton and Stanley Kubrick.

I decide to just make a tribute to Walter White by making an illustration, and then it was missing Jesse Pinkman, so I made it after. Why not a bad guy? So I made Gustavo, and etc etc. Until I had thirteen characters. From that step, I was thinking, why not to make an animation? But I thought, only characters would be weak… And after two filmography (Kubrick and Burton) both in the same style, I needed to create something more dynamic and rock and roll, but still keeping my style and improving my motion design skills. Backgrounds were interesting to create. I wanted the viewers to feel the atmosphere of New Mexico, with the USA and Mexican influence.
