The Title Sequence

Here is a story board for a possible title sequence for a defunct Sam & Max game. This was only to try to explore Sam & Max's acting and how the background elements might play against them.
The idea was that there would be colored flats moving in the background depicting various threatening villains. The little rappelling figures are like anonymous silhouetted henchmen for Sam & Max to pick off. The little shaggy rectangle in the last frame indicates a title just in case there was some possible way you didn't already figure that out.
There are some color concepts that go with this which I'll go hunt for at some point which convey a widescreen version of the idea. 8 1/2X11 each page Ballpoint and Marker

What Kind of Dog is That?

In art school I was working on a Sam & Max weekly strip and one episode found Sam & Max walking down the street hallucinating on cherry pie that had been drugged. In one panel they see each other as real animals and I found myself trying to figure out what kind of a dog Sam would be. In the same way Foghorn Leghorn claims to be a Rhode Island Red, Sam from that point on became an Irish Wolf Hound. The proportions don't quite add up but he's well in the ball park I would say.

Be Mine...

An old convention drawing with a bit of color added tonight with my clunky laptop thumb pad. Go ahead and print it out for your most beloved loved ones. They'll never stop thanking you for it. 8X10 Pen and Ink

Lost Comic

When I'm asked if I'll ever any more comics, this story comes up. I started it a long time ago for an anthology then put it in a drawer when some other opportunities turned up. I tell myself I'll have to finish it off at some point so I can finally strike it from the vast ledger book of half-made projects.

I should mention that the lettering on these pages was done by Official Sam & Max letterer Lois Buhalis. I was just glancing at these pages and appreciating the artistry of her hand lettering. Though I have used the canned stuff it's just not the same.
