American History
Preliminary Drawing: All of these illustrations begin with a discussion between myself, the film director, and the creative director. They then move on to preliminary sketches. Some of the sketches are essentially "idea doodles" to get a sense of whether or not I understand the point of view and context of the situation. Doodles become more refined compositional sketches like this. Once these are approved, the painting begins. Occasionally, changes are made to the finishd paintings to better express the story involved in the film.
