Here’s my first set of background paintings for Motorcity - episode 02 “Power Trip.”
After taking a painting test, this was the next step. Basically my “audition” to secure a permanent spot on the monstrously talented Motorcity design team. On a show that even if I wasn’t involved with, I would KILL to work on. No pressure, right?
The first layout didn’t seem too bad-“I can do that!” I thought to myself. Then, they brought up the second one. The “engine porn” shot, if you will. Talk about a trial by fire! I was sweating as soon as I saw it. Well, do or die, fight or flee, right? So I buckled down, strapped in and attacked it with everything I had (at the time). When the dust settled, there I stood. Still breathing-though ragged at times. And now I’m doing what I love-every day. I can’t imagine feeling better than this.
Thanks for picking up this wayward hitchhiker. I’ll ride beside you for as long as you’ll have me.
*While I “technically” worked on episode one, those BG’s were mainly fixes & touch-ups, so I wont be sharing those as I don’t feel like it’s really my own work.
