Saatchi & Saatchi Presentation Art...




As an Illustrator in the Art Studio at Saatchi & Saatchi I was able to turn out a set of presentation drawings like this in about a day and a half. The assignments were always fast-paced and fun, and I had the opportunity to work with some of the best Art Directors in the Ad Business.

This is great Vin....I don't think I could turn that around in a week and a half! Not to mention the fact that I don't have your skill in the first place....

Thanks, B. I'm very happy that I got the chance to work with Creative Director, Jaques Dufour on General Mills. Lot's of Trix Rabbits, Lucky Leprechauns and Honey Bees, and lot's of fun work.

Kind words, Ry. I guess we all have our own skill set. God knows I'd never be able to cobble up a half-decent, on-model Disney Princess. Unless I was putting my own 'spin' on it.

I appreciate the kudos, Mr. Aitch. Saatchi was a day at the beach in comparison to GEM Studio.

Huuuutttcchh! Thanks, Pal. This was the kind of down and dirty assignment I've always enjoyed... get it done and out the door! Very little dicking around and no 'committee thinking' on the back end. I didn't begin to draw until the concepts and Art Director's layouts were green lit.

Thanks again everyone, I really didn't think anyone even looked at this page anymore. It's nice to get some feedback.

Amazing colors as always Vinny.

Man I love this style you seem to do effortlessly.

I love this Archie-esque classic comic book style Vince. JC got a kick out of it too! Saatchi just doesn't do it like they used to. ;)

Thanks, Eddis.

You're too kind, Nicolette. Thanks.

Thanks, Whitney and JC. I hear that most of the presentation and storyboard art in advertising is now done digitally, using photos and retouching.
