The other day I saw a new commercial for a local hospital and I realized it was the first storyboard job I drew over a year ago. I had kinda wondered why I hadn't seen any commercials I had storyboarded.
I figured maybe I had done such a poor job they didn't sell the concept. I guess really I didn't realize how long it takes to make a commercial. Since I draw the concept boards (instead of shooting boards) I am at the very front of the process.
I really enjoy drawing the storyboards, almost as much as I enjoy drawing. I'm not sure which I enjoyed most about this job, the actual work or the fact in one evening I made enough garbonzos to pay for my trip to the San Diego Comicon in '06.
