“Watch This Space”: an animation collaboration, written by Jack “Space” O’Brien, illustrated by Kemii Maguire.
- TITLE: “Watch this Space”
- Speed illustration on black card, with stars.
Title First Draft. With speed animation, we could do something along these lines – taking inspiration from “Lead Balloon”, to look something like this. Sorry about the quality – was filmed on my phone with one hand (copyright free music used for the sake of this video).
Brainstorming of Cartoons
- “Watch this Space” title?
- Using old nickname
Things I like:
- Using the scarf/coat to drape over the chair – for an item (skull, Captain America shield/mini TARDIS/Raven) be put on it/caught up inside it each episode.
- Using different styles: watercoloured chair with cartooned Jack sitting on top?
- This style (cartooning wise) takes on a bit of Footrot flats, Leunig, and Kudelka – which I think would really work for this (more versatile)
- Opening video may be effective.
- It’s cute.
Collection of brainstorming sketches.
Things I like so far:
- Wavy arms to illustrate character
- Scarf, or an eccentric item of clothing
Things experimented with:
- Sitting on bookshelves
- Scarf or cool jacket to cover mouth (would possibly make talking or character easier and more interesting to look at?)
