Irons in the fire
It's been awhile since my last posting but all for good reason. I've been Art Directing the much anticipated new series for Adult Swim called "Rick and Morty" and had my first son in May so its been a good yet crazy year so far! The first image is teaser promo art I put together for the show which premieres in December. The image later became the art for our billboards in LA, Atlanta, and NYC. There will be more on this later once the show has aired, can't wait!! Before working on Rick and Morty, I went out on the story pitch trail to try my luck out at the networks. The next piece is a character lineup I did from one of the shows I helped develop called "Alien Admissions"- a workplace comedy set at a storefront language and culture school that teaches alien immigrants how to be Americans. The third image is for another show I helped develop called "Love on the Air" - it follows the story of Rodge Morris, Marin County's most romantic DJ that could use a little love. Single for the first time in his life at age 36, soft-rock DJ Rodge Morris finds his naively romantic notions of the world leave him unprepared for the harsh realities of 21rst- Century bachelor life.
