MTV Suspect: Episode 01

So the show that I've been spending the last few months working on premiered last week. You can watch the first episode here. Our team kind of wore a lot of hats throughout production. Most of my role was storyboarding the motion graphics reenactment scenes and many of those drawings were used as parts of title cards throughout the episodes. Here's some of the stuff I had done before they were evolved for the finished episode last week.

Since sequences were very short and I wasn't necessarily responsible for lining them up with sound from the episode, here's some boards that made it in as gifs:

Allen & Jonathan


Kristen & Thomas



As it can happen in any production, scenes and the boards for them do get cut in production, but my team was awesome enough to incorporate rough sketches into some of the handwriting cards sprinkled throughout the episode, like the one below:


I was also responsible for making sort of rotoscoped/caricatured hybrids of people in the show:


There was so much more that I had done for just this episode, alone! Perhaps one day, I'll be able to show more. Until then, I'll keep this blog updated with my contributions to Suspect.

VIDA Shop



Two updates in one day! I also wanted to announce that I've just recently started collaborating with VIDA, a new Google backed company that sells high end fashion done by all sorts of artists. I was lucky enough to be approached by them and my shop was just launched this week. There isn't much yet, but I'm looking forward to making more pieces to put on these lovely products. I might even want to buy a few, myself!

Music and Sparkles


One of my favorite characters to draw from another of my stories. I might have posted about her before, but this is Acappella the Music Spark. She's music personified and about as magical as that crazy sparkly cape thing she wears.

A Beautiful Sight to See


Another BioShock Infinite based piece. I seem to be on a kick lately. This one is inspired by a song that was actually very popular around the time the game takes place and reminds me very much of Elizabeth and her story.

Brooke Dewitt


Another little fanart challenge I've given myself. I always wondered what Booker Dewitt from BioShock Infinite would be like if he were a woman, or Brooke Dewitt, as I and some other fans call her. With the box cover art as reference, I learned a lot with this piece.

Hot Tub of Tea

I just came across the piece that I did for CTN back in November. They were celebrating the anniversary of the original Alice in Wonderland story, so it was a theme for all the guest artists to do an illustration of. I had a lot of fun experimenting with this little mixed media piece.
