Next 5

My friend Emma first introduced me to this exercise. It's a really great boarding challenge that helps train you to come up with entertaining ideas quickly.
The idea is you start with a random photo (Flickr is a good source for these) and you treat it like the first shot of a short film. Then you figure out what happens next, and board the next five shots; not the next five panels, but the next five unique shots. In the end you should have six drawings (including your starting image).
We're doing this exercise with our story trainees at the studio right now and i realized i'd never posted any of these here. This is one i did using this photo as a starting point.

(TECHNICALLY i cheated; i added a second panel for my first shot, so i've got seven drawings here)

Kamen Rider/Super Sentai!

Happening TONIGHT!
Right now, this very second, Q-Pop is hosting its Kamen Rider/Super Sentai gallery tribute!

I couldn't make it to the opening and i'm super bummed, but it's up for a WHOLE WEEK so that's plenty of time to check it out!

I was thrilled to be invited to participate in the show. Here are my pieces, which are all for sale!

Electro-Wave Human Tackle, TECHNICALLY the first female Rider.

She loved Kamen Rider sooooo much.
