My story sketches mark the film in broad strokes, describing emotional, plot and visual points that suggest the film's terrain; some snapshots.

more to come...


  1. Hey Nick,

    Thanks for stopping by with the kind words. It's been a little while since I've dropped by here and the last 6-7 posts are amazing. I am going to need some time to absorb all the inspiring work you've put up.
    Keep it up!

  2. Awesome once again!!!!

  3. Lovely black and whites... also love the parade in the previous post.

    I can't recall seeing a better portfolio! This must have been a blast to work on! Are you making the film yet?

    Publishing it as a book? Pages bookstore in Toronto will take small press runs...

  4. Thanks all--I'm happy to hear that people are enjoying it so far. There's only a little bit left.

    Justin--I'm very glad you dropped by! I'd be happy to know what you think once you get a better look.

    SJS--your enthusiasm is always appreciated!

    and J&A Doodlers--Very complimentary! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but I think it would still need a lot of work before it could be made into a film. I have thought of making it into a kids book though...

  5. Awesome man.
    There is no better portfolio! Nick is Toronto's secret weapon.

  6. These are all good , but I love the last one in red pencil, Nick. (as you know I'm on a real "ruff drawing" kick right now). Again, thanks for blogging your production and giving us an look inside your process. I'm learning a lot these days from all the various animation and cartooning blogs out there . Something's happening... this communal sharing of sketches and concept art is very stimulating. I'm inspired and excited (as well as very humbled) by seeing all the amazing artwork being posted.

  7. you are a modern day genius!!

  8. It's funny, reading this a year later, its so clear how much intelligence and fun went in to this, and how much comes back out.
    It's a real work of art man. Bonafide.
