Up for auction on eBay is original production art by Douglas “Two-Coast” Lovelace! Lovelace was Storyboard Revision Supervisor on Season 1 of the Venture Brothers. Lovelace has also done storyboard and design for all 4 seasons of the show.
These are pencil drawings of Dr. Venture from the Venture Bros Season 1, “Ghosts of the Sargasso”. The art is the final storyboard as seen on the show. 2 drawings taped to regular letter size paper: Dr Venture drawing cut into production prop design and a close up of Rusty in the flooded diving suit. Condition is excellent – shows use but no tears or kinks.
Season 1 of Venture Bros had a very Beatles-in-Hamburg feeling for me. The designs were being fire-tested and there was a wonderful sense of exploration and discovery in drawing the characters. This was 2003/04 and digital production had not yet taken over the storyboard process. This meant a lot of drawings were done for scenes, then photocopied to size and cut into the board pages. This artwork is the original drawing later copied & used in the board.
This item and more is currently up for auction on eBay. Auction ends February 13th, 2011.
