Creative Pipeline Diagram

In my ‘day job’ I recently worked with some brilliant people on a trans-disciplinary assignment task. The idea was that students from Creative Writing came up with a short story, which our Animation students turned into a story reel (images on a timeline), and the Digital Media cohort reimagined as VR and AR outputs.

As a way to demonstrate this process and as part of a suite of outcomes to satisfy the requirements of a grant, I made a simple flowchart illustration. I’ve tried to push into a graphic stylistic territory style, and I’m pretty happy with the result. Scroll down for detailed character closeups and process drafts.

Drafts- working it out

These next three images are my ‘thumbnail/brainstorm drafts, figuring out what to include and beginning to rough out the placement of text and characters.


In the end, I used the second version and did some tweaking to arrive at this rough, ready for inking and colouring.
