Up for auction on eBay is original production art by Douglas “No Nickname” 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.
Auction items are pencil drawings of the Monarch from the Venture Bros Season 1, “Are You There God, It’s Me Dean”. The drawings are the final art seen on the show. Drawn on regular letter-size paper. Condition is excellent with no tears or kinks.
Season 1 of Venture Bros had a very Beatles-in-Hamburg feeling for Lovelace. 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 March 10th, 2011.
