For over forty years I did storyboards, hundreds of them, most done under outrageous deadlines. But that's the life of many commercial artists, and it pays well. Often I would have the whole week off to pursue my experiments in the fine arts and the storyboards would arrive on late afternoon Friday with a Monday AM deadline. I quit doing storyboards about four years ago as the deadlines were getting almost impossible. Below are some examples of my work in that field. The first batch was done for Y & R in Irvine California. I had 65 frames to do over a weekend. I had to do each frame in an about fifteen or twenty minutes to make the deadline, so these are examples of my very rough FAST renderings. Remember, I also had to find reference material of specific locations as well. These were all delivered over the internet.
The batch below are from a series of frames done for Holiday Inn, I don't remember the ad agency. Another tough deadline, but I did have the time to do tighter renderings.
In the following weeks I will post many examples of my comp layout and storyboard work.
