"DAN VS." Art

Finally finished work on Season 1 of DAN VS., so now I actually have some
time to share my designs with ya:

Drawing Edo-period Japanese characters is fun!

This trick-or-treater wound up hanging upside down tied up in rope,
so here's your chance to actually see him.


Little Elise, from her traumatic New Mexico childhood flashback.

Chris (Voiced by Canuck Dave Foley) reveals his Canadian ancestry by changing into
a bear when threatened, as "all Canadians are half bear" according to Dan.

Ya can't do a proper Canada show without a Sasquatch appearance.

... and check out the billboard I did for the show!
(Along with my original concept art)

This one's up over the 101 FWY in Hollywood (Where Cahuenga meets Barham)
so if you're driving through in the next week or two, keep your eyes peeled!
The billboard isn't up anymore, but you can see some coverage of it HERE!

"Keep eyes "canadian" and dumb animal"

What the freakin what?!?

Chris Battle said...

@ Steve: Ha-- We made a design decision to have all the Canadians in this ep. always appear happy & pleasant, which was partly evident in the eyes. So it's a combo of that detail plus a look of a dumb animal 'cause he's, well, ...an animal ;)
