Life is Easy With Directions
How to Sumo Wrestle is one of a series of 9 traditionally animated channel idents for Discovery designed as a quirky instruction manual to help guide the audience through life's rather more unusual difficulties. Some of the rest of the series are here along with some stills and character turn arounds.
The idents were animated in pencil, scanned and composited in After Effects. Voice over talents courtesy of John Cleese.
