JENNY, JENNY... WHO CAN I TURN TO? Once again, it's Jenny to the rescue in this illustration from one of our storyboard artist packs. How many weapons is she packing anyway? Posted by Hello

So I can't post a regular entry yet, but I thought I'd mention in this space how good Dave Thomas's storyboard pitch for "Kilgore" was this afternoon. Dave's won an Annie Award for his storyboard work (for The Fairly OddParents episode "Pipe Down"). Robot's regular staff of board artists is top-notch, but it's always fun to get a different point of view from a guest artist - and a talented one at that. I can't wait to see the finished cartoon.

That's a great sheet! It's an older one (oooh! collector's item), and Jenny's model has been revised I think at least twice since Alex did it. I'm still trying to think of something really bizarre to upload here. Would anyone be interested in seeing some pre-pre-pre development Brit n' Tiff art? I've got some color development Raggedy Android fun, too, but let me try to find it! ;)

I didn't notice that the posted jenny sheet was an older model; I'll have to look more carefully to see if I can spot the differences now. I can't speak for anyone but myself, but I'd be interested in seeing the older brit & tiff sheet, since it would probably illustrate some of the considerations in character design that were taken into account in developing the current character models.

Speaking of character design, it occurred to me today that there are some design similarities between the red and purple robots Jenny daydreams about hanging out with close to the beginning of "tradeshow showdown," and some elements of Brit and Tiff Krust's character design: not close enough to be obvious, or to enable one to say that these are robot equivalents of Brit and Tiff, but there are subtle correspondences in the taller red robot's hands and Tiff's hands, the shape of the shorter purple robot's head and the shape of Brit's head, and the fact that there is a marked difference in height between the two robots, just as Brit is a lot shorter than Tiff.

Probably the strongest similarity is the light reflecting off the taller red robot's hair, represented by a thick z-shaped white line. It's an awful lot like the way that the light reflects off of Tiff's hair.

I don't know if anyone would agree with me on this, but it may suggest that Jenny is very sincere in wanting to be friends with Brit and Tiff.

As for the other robots in the daydream, they seem to be pulled out of the teen magazines that Jenny reads.

I'm really not sure why I thought of this. It sort of just hit me.

Just a correction: I got Brit and Tiff mixed up! I just noticed this because I was watching "Class Action" again to check my design theory (since that episode has a lot of Brit and Tiff in it), and the chemistry professor answered Brit by name. Also, the height difference between them apparently isn't as large as I thought it was, although it could be Tiff's hat.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
