Advertising Work

Hi, I’m Alex and I’m here to bring your ideas to life.

I draw compelling compositions, expressive characters and coherent narratives with integrated considerations of camera movement and framing. Whether you’re a director in need of some storyboards to help you on a shoot, or a creative agency looking for high finished boards or animatics to research or pitch your vision for a script, I can help.

Shooting Boards & Directors’ Boards

Shooting boards- quick sketches for plotting out your script with compesition and framing to guide the visual narrative for animatics or more detailed boards.

Director’s board’s – working with the director before shooting to lay out shots and form the visual storytelling. Typically these are more detailed than shooting boards but not as as deatiled as research boards.

 
 
 
 

Detailed Linework / Colour Frames

These storyboards are usually more detailed than typical directors/ film storyboards and range from pure black and white linework, linework with tone and shading or full colour frames. Also referred to as ‘research boards’.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Experiential Visuals

Whether it’s for a promotional installation, immersive experience or anamorphic billboard I’ve got you covered. Ranging from rough sketch style walkthrough boards and pitch ideas to fully rendered colour visuals.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Animation & Illustration

Full blown animatics with integrated editing for long and short band animations, character designs, illustrated artwork and narratives. I can cover multiple styles or genres.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Artwork Development Process

Thumbnail sketches

Beginning with initial loose thumbnail sketches to flesh out ideas, I essentially create a ‘skeleton frame’, to which I build upon whilst developing ideas.

01

line work

As the ideas become more finalised, I then go on to tidying up the sketches into line work

02

Finalising the Artwork

Before adding the finishing touches of completed storyboards. I adapt the style and level of finish of the boards to aim for the highest quality of work within the time constraints of the project.
