What I do for a crust Pt3- Storyboards

Commercial storyboards take up about three-quarters of my workload. These boards are used by ad agencies to pitch potential television advertisements to clients and test audiences. Some get made into commercials, some don't.

Here are some single frame samples taken from different storyboard sets. All five of these were made into television commercials.



1. This was for Pizza Hut and their new mascot, Pizza Mutt.





2.Originally this was a Visa ad starring Valentino Rossi, but eventually the idea evolved into a James Bond-style ad starring Pierce Brosnan.




3. A more stylish drawing style was required for this ad.





4. A fun bunch of storyboards for a muesli product. The storyboards where I can play around with expressions are usually the most enjoyable.


5. These frames required a more polished look and finished colouring style. Done for Panasonic.

These are beautiful! Thanks for posting these, with accompanying descriptions...they really stand alone as lovely illustrations. I especially like the simple style of the 'Hahn' one.

Wow, most storyboards I have seen aren't nearly this crisp. Presentation is key, great job!

Rock! I love that Visa ad. :) And I've seen the Panasonic one a few times in theatres during the previews.
I'm so glad you started this blog! :)
