I have been very fortunate this year to spend a good chunk of my time working on a few freelance projects for Disney Mobile out of Palo Alto, CA. The team there is incredible in terms of creativity, generosity, and gaming excellence. I was honored to work with them on their projects.
One of the projects I briefly worked on was this one:
Star Wars? Perhaps even Tiny Tower? Well, mix them together and you get Star Wars: Tiny Death Star, now available to own in the Apple App Store! FOR FREE!! I got to help board out the opening title sequence for the game, which (being Star Wars) starts with the famous line, the bold logo, and the infamous scroll. Heaven! Of course, now that the game has been released, I was informed that my opening sequence was actually completely dropped. So...enjoy my boards, and just pretend that they're actually for something that exists!

Not too long ago, I was approached by USC student Graham Oyoung (whom I had previously done some freelance storyboard work for) about helping out on a project he was working on entitled The Light Thief. Apparently the team had worked with a couple of other board artist on the project, but they just couldn't quite get the third act to work how they envisioned it.
That's where I came in with this:
Yep. And they liked it, too. So much so, in fact, that they asked me to go back to the start and give 'em my interpretation of the whole dang thing! Unfortunately, I was a bit bogged down with Disney Mobile freelance work (more on that soon, once I can post it) at the time, so I could only do a rough thumbnail pass:
Still, it was a fun project. Always good to try new things!
