Brave New World

I'm not usually one for (a) drawing stuff or (b) going down the road of index cards. Having said that, I do quite like diagrams when putting an idea together. I've found that if you put various elements on a sheet of paper, in their own separate shapes, it helps you free-associate, drawing lines between them and generally getting an overview of the balance of it all.

So here's what I've been up to today, for my new TV series idea, using some sketchpad paper, one particularly large A2 sheet and pens of various colours (just to make it look all purrrdy). One sheet for characters, one for potential storylines and the big one for details of the world I'm putting together. Artistic or autistic? Such a fine line...

I particularly like the big orange spiky bubble to the left.

Jason Arnopp said...

Yes. I was particularly excited when I did that.

Hey, you should see the green bubble I just drew, the shape of a cat's head...

I only wish the photo was of a higher resolution so I could enjoy the words.

And possibly steal them.

Unfortunately, all of the words are simply "Satan is my master", repeated over and over again.

Jason Arnopp said...

Oh, I forgot to include the name of the TV series.

It's entitled Satan Is My Master.

I think it counts as artistic unless you provide a Colour Key. If you flip over the paper does it say Paul is dead?

I want an orange marker. If this is really an ad campaign for Sharpie, damn, you're good.

got to say that is one of the funniest things i have ever seen - you are an inspiration to procrastinators everywhere!

Could we re-tool it as 'Celebrity Satan Is My Master'? I think it could work as a vehicle for Anthony and Declan, as I believe they're known.
