Storyboard Studios: 1985

Its hard to believe its been almost a quarter of a century since these ads appeared in The Creative Black Book. I used to study these pages like mad, hoping to absorb some knowledge, skill, whatever... anything that I could learn to hopefully make my work look more professional.

Always especially intriguing: Continuity Studio's ads, with that distinctive Neal Adams look to all their samples. As we learned from Howard Chaykin's comment, a lot of comic book artists were supplementing their meager incomes by drawings comps and storyboards under Adams' guidance. Personally, I always thought Continuity's ads were the slickest.

* This blog is intended to be a place for storyboard artists to show and share. If you'd like to guest write a post, or just show off your work, drop me a line at leifpeng [at] gmail [dot] com and I'll make you a contributing author. Of course your comments and suggestions are always welcome!
