Timmy and the Dinosaur by Adam Carolla

On a recent episode of the Adam Carolla Show, Adam took about a minute to write a children's book (Chris D'Elia episode).  I immediately dropped everything and began illustrating the tale of Timmy and the Dinosaur.

Here it is.


Timmy and the Dinosaur was featured on the May 13th episode of The Adam Carolla show. Thank you guys!



I handled this project like a storyboarding/animatic exercise (Yes, I'm looking for work in animation. Please share this with your industry friends). The pages were sketched out quickly in Photoshop. It's great because you can move, add and scale things easily. 

The artwork was created in Adobe Illustrator then imported into Flash. The line art just looks better when it's done this way. I used the custom brushes and techniques laid out by Clay Butler in this Youtube tutorial. I saved an Action that automates the steps it takes to go from this weird looking, overlapped lines to artwork that's cleaned up and ready to color.


Thanks to Jun Sugiyama for making his music available for stuff like this.
