Starboards: A New Dope.

Once again, some work from Advanced Storyboarding. Professor Goto has us flexing our nerd muscles to the max by assigning us a Jedi/Sith fight scene, designing everything from the characters to the world they're fighting on.
I found some awesome photos here:
And decided to base the area off this old snowy abandoned refinery I found amongst the calvacade of awesome photos on that website.

It's actually 23 boards long, so here's a small taste.

JCB Commercial Boards

For my Advanced Storyboarding class, we were assigned to work with some of the college's Industrial Design majors, who are working close with a construction equipment company known as JCB.
The ID Majors tell us that JCB, a European company, currently has problems marketing itself in the USA because apparently their products are seen as feminine. So it's the ID Major's job to do some marketing research and find out who JCB should be pin-pointing.
They gave us some data, and we figured out that we should be doing a commercial showing the power of JCB through the faults of their competitors.

The boards are supposed to as if they were screencaps, so there was to be no camera movements displayed or iconography that would confuse.

So, here are my boards, in sequential order:

Fluke '08 - Sketches

This weekend I drove to Athens, GA to participate in Fluke 2008. A small gathering of minicomic artists in the 2nd floor of a bar - Tasty World - where you can set up a booth to sell your wares, trade, mingle and generally have a good time.

I was prepared this year, I brought about eight different comics this year, but sadly, it started an hour earlier than I originally thought, so I had something of a bad booth all the way in the back of the bar, but I was able to sell a few copies of each. Most were handed out to trade.
I brought two first timers to Athens, my good friend Josh and Lynette, a girl I've known for a while and has just gotten her first taste of minicomics last quarter in our Minicomic class. Both loved Athens and had a great time.

One of my friends took a few pictures if I recall, I'll have to get it out of them to post here soon. I'll even take a shot of my monumental pile of aqquired comics, which I can tell you is quite large.

For the most part the trip was uneventful, aside from getting lost on the ghostly Georgia roads late at night, trying to stumble back into Savannah.

Here's a few sketches I ended up drawing, hopefully they're entertaining.

48 Hours well spent.

This is only the first page for my grand Comixstravaganza exit this quarter. I need a nap.
