BOONDOCKS PRODUCTION ART: THE KATRINIANS!

Back with more production art from the Peabody Award-winning animated series, “The Boondocks.”

As Supervising Character designer on the show, my job was to design the characters to be turned for the animators overseas.

Here’s the first of the rough thumbnail layouts i did for last nights episode “Invasion of the Katrinians.” a controversial episode: when family displaced by hurricane Katrina show up looking for a place to stay, Granddad does what anyone would do- try to find a way to get rid of them as quickly as possible.

Jericho Freeman here is skinnier than the final. this was the first pass. Jericho is played by Cedric the Entertainer and his son, nique, is play by Lil Wayne. funny, Funny episode and one of my favorites.
