For this project it's all about communication. Which goes for both the illustration itself and with those I'm collaborating with. So, I do my best to keep those doors between the director/writer and myself as wide open as possible. And for me this always starts with notes.
I do a lot writing before the sketch gets to paper because I want to retain as much detail as I can get from the image in my mind - and writing is the quickest way to get it out there. You can check out my notes based on Will & my conversation right HERE.
Then from there I move towards communicating those notes through quick pencil sketches - like the one we have here.
Hope you enjoy and I'll have part deux for you tomorrow,
