StoryBoard Artwork

I was just recently working on some storyboards for a series of 15 second commercials. Now, obviously I can't show you the storyboards since the project is live. But here's a sample of one of the panels.

The panels were drawn quick and fast. I had to complete five storyboards (four to five panels each) within two days. Mostly black and white with some coloring to hi-light desired areas. It works out to ohhhh... about 30 minutes or so per panel.

After about 30 minutes... you have to go with whatever you've got and hope that you can come back to redo it later if you have time.

Stressful.. but fun in a panicked sort of way.

Notice how I artfully slipped a plug for my website into the focal area of the panel?

10 minute sketch

I've been watching my 2 year-old daughter move about the house clutching a stockpiled bunch of plastic horses to her chest. She hordes them with jealous passion. It got so ridiculous to see all those horsie-legs poking out every which way that I had to take a few minutes and sketch the impression down.
