AN ARTIST AT WORK. Here is one of our world-class storyboard artists hard at work on an upcoming episode of "Teenage Robot." You would think he'd need a pencil or pen to do the work, but he actually has ink surgically inserted into the tips of his fingers so he can draw with nothing but his clenched hands.  Posted by Hello

Great pictures. On a rough average, how many images are contained in the story-board for a typical 15 minute episode?

Technically, each episode is about 11 minutes long (Can't forget those all important commercials!) and a storyboard pitch usually has around 500 to 600 drawings. It varies from artist to artist of course and it changes based on the story being told. Episodes with a lot of action require more drawings to show what will happen very quickly on screen.

Amazing! I never saw anybody use just their finger tips
to draw a storyboard. No wonder your show is so well drawn.

Yeah, I forgot the commercials, whoops. I'm glad my job doesn't involve trying to keep track of 500-600 post-its!
