I recently sent a pitch in to the Nickelodeon Shorts Program. The requirements have increased over previous years (if memory serves) in that you have to send in a thumbnail board along with the concept and character designs. I jammed that sucker out nice and fast, hopefully translating some of the energy on to the page. Once I got going, this was the most fun drawing I’ve had in a while.
It’s called Bacon Spacehorse and it’s about a magical horse who answers kid’s questions about space.
A naive and magical horse that lives in space. He can do anything he wishes and loves to learn so much, he will tear you apart if you get in his way of his search for answers.
A selfish space explorer who left his hive to sting planets. Real name Colin Santana. Wanted to be a spaceman after watching Flight of the Navigator as a larva.
A TV astronomer who knows very little about what he’s talking about. He has undisclosed financial problems.
STORYBOARD: WHAT’S INSIDE A BLACK HOLE?
Bacon Spacehorse and Astrobee zoom around space in search of a black hole. What they find inside surprises them.
