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 five pencil drawings from Venture Brothers Season 1, “The Trial of the Monarch”. The art is the final storyboard as seen on the show. Illustrated on regular letter size paper, drawings of various dimensions: Image One is the whole page – the rest are roughly half a pages. 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.
