I'm a bit late with this but the animation spot for BBC Olympics coverage mentioned 2 posts before is being aired on tv and is available online. I still can't show the work I did for this but you can watch the whole thing on BBC Website.
I was hired as Backgrounds Designer and I painted a lot of backgrounds, see if you can guess which ones ;). Lots of work but lots of fun as well. The other backgrounds artist on this job was Kevin Dart .
