story sketching for Vis Dev

The coolest part of my job as a Production Designer is the initial concept of an idea. I am not talking about a finished concept painting but instead the more important scribble that will help visualize the written word. Over the years I have found a short hand for expressing my ideas, and none of it includes finished technique. Done with only a pen, paper and markers, the artist must utilize every device at their disposal to capture the viewers attention and then keep it to tell the story visually. I am starting with location design from "AstroBoy".The drawings were done during our story meetings. I sketched as we talked. I will post more and do some analysis of why and how these sketches communicate effectively. -Sam
