I was in China at the time, cycling to work every day in one of the busiest roads of Shanghai when I received this task. The old lady was more of a secondary character in this show. After drawing super hip kids and teens for over a decade, she felt so refreshing I just couldn't stop.
In the script there was no mentioning of scooters and reckless driving, but for some reason I felt she's crazy/cool enough to drive like the people around me on Julu Lu.
Later on I though maybe she has a pesky little neighbor
and a good childhood friend to laugh, to quarrel, to gossip and fight ruffians.
Hi there! It's been a while. Is anybody out there who's still following this blog? Or any blog for that matter?
Well... I don't think I ever shared this sketch I did looooong ago, but I just bumped into it while going through the dusty folders of my computer.
Thought you might like it :-)
Things get lost or forgotten.
Like keys. Like wallets. Sometimes shoes. 8 GB of drawings. Wait wha..? Yes. It seems like I forgot to share the drawings from the movie I was storyboarding. Two. Years. Ago.
Working on this movie was great fun, especially because I was working on it at night. It felt like I was living a parallel life, one where I chase monsters.
