As I mentioned in my last post, we here at American Greetings Properties have a few shows on a new network called: The Hub. One of the shows that I did development artwork for is called Twisted Whiskers. If you've tuned in to the show, you will see that some designs may have made it into the program (Zippy the Greyhound) and some have not: (Giant, un-named St. Bernard). As most designers will tell you, it's all part of the process. A lot of what I did for the show either did not make it in, or was 're-visualized' by another artist before going into the final shows. Once again, it's the nature of the beast, and I still had alot of fun working on this show, and still have all my pre-conceptual artwork to remind me of what I did.
O, yeah. And I can show it to you guys, too!
A new kids television network called The Hub launched last week with a couple of our American Greetings Property-created programs as part of their roster. I happened to do alot of design development work on these shows, so I thought that it would be appropriate to show you guys a bit of what that entailed.
First up is a preschool property known as Maryoku Yummy. I know, I know, most of you are familiar with my monsterific side by way of Madballs, Monster Hunter and the other varied creepy crawlers that inhabit this blog most of the time. But I was very proud to be able stir up that softer side of my design skills, working on this program for almost 6 months to help a talented team of artists visualize the world of Maryoku Yummy .If you have children at the preschool age, or just want to check out a cute, positive, good natured bit of children's entertainment, tune in to the show. It is really very sweet.
Hey, variety is the spice of life, and man does not live by beast alone.
