BrightLeaf & The Sacred Idol: The first several pages.

It's been a while, I know, but I've finally got my act together. Along with trying to get Brightleaf done before SPX, I've also started work on a simpler project that I'll be putting into minicomic form, known as "The Gem of Power", more on that later.

Here are the first seven pages of Brightleaf & The Sacred Idol's final inks, colors to come soon. Later on I'll post some of the research that went into creating this world.

The Classic Jet-Powered Vespa Gag!

As a sort of doubly-whammy update this week, here's some boards I just finished late for my Advanced Storyboarding class. It's a car chase between a coffee jockey chasing after some Blues Brothers knock-offs after being stiffed. Enjoy!

The Brightleaf Continues

Hey there, casual blog-watchers. Sorry for being a little tardy on the posting schedule, earlier this week I had something of a freakout with my work, and it got a little out of hand. So apologies all around!

Today though, at SCAD was Editor's Day, which was an extremely positive experience filled with alot of great critiques and loads of shmoozing. As a celebration for rising out of my depressive ashes, I will post the first two pages of "Brightlead & The Sacred Idol."

BrightLeaf's Return

Just a quick preview of the cover to my latest project: BrightLeaf & The Sacred Idol.
After finishing the five page comic for the anthology a couple months ago, I instantly new I wanted to do more with BrightLeaf, and it's finally happening!

Yes, Yes, Bask in it.

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:
