Venture Brothers Season 2, pt. 6

I was fortunate enough to be listed twice in the credits of "Guess Who's Coming to State Dinner", which aired a couple of weeks ago. I worked as a designer on the show, creating new characters and props, which is what I did for the whole season. After I finished up my design position in early January '06, I got a few calls in the months afterwards to pick up some additional freelance work on the show, which was usually design work that had fallen through the cracks. As it turned out, I was also asked to help out on storyboard revisions for a couple of episodes. The following are 'board revisions for "Guess Who's Coming to State Dinner".

Board Revisions are generally what you might guess they are, mainly additional work putting the characters on model (like the above pages that feature Dean Venture), or sometimes completely redrawing scene angles, etc. (examples shown below), based on those little thumbnail, post-it note fixes that I keep mentioning Mr. Publick would constantly churn out (in addition to writing, designing, and voice acting for the show, along with a million other things not mentioned here). All my work that you see here is done in a thick black ink line on top of the work that the board artist did.

I think these next pages of boards were cut out of the final production.
