DAN VS. Premieres tonight!

This weekend you can catch my designs for the new series DAN VS., premiering Saturday, Jan. 1 @ 9:00 PM eastern/6:00 PM Central on The Hub

Dan is an ill-tempered curmudgeon with a major chip on his shoulder... against the entire world. The slightest perceived wrong will set him off on a mission of revenge against his imagined enemies. Dan's friend Chris usually gets roped into going along on said missions, much to the dismay of his wife, Elise (who usually winds up bailing Chris & Dan out of jail)

While the overall look for Dan & Chris were based on creators Dan Mandel & Chris Pearson, Elise had no visual development before the start of production, and we tried a lot of different styles before settling on the final design. Here's a look at a bit of the design process:
