The folks at Cartoon Network announced what’s in their pipeline for the 2009-2010 season at their upfront presentation this week in Manhattan. As part of its announcement, the network released this first piece of official press art for Adventure Time, which, if you want to be technical, is actually now Adventure Time with Finn and Jake. Read the press release - complete with requisite misspelling of Fred’s name - here.
If you’re looking for the “Meet the Ice King” storyboard, these panels are what we’ve got for you right now; we took the board itself down.
This time I can’t even blame a network for it. Nope, it’s my fault. Pen and I spoke about it, but I didn’t check in with the other key members of the AT creative team. They felt there was a better way for us to share the show with you as we proceed, and I agreed I’d jumped the gun.
Don’t worry, there’ll still be plenty of AT works-in-progress posted in the coming year or so the show’s in production. You’ll see almost every step along the way, and you’ll be hearing more from the crew themselves, which is a lot better than what we’ve been given you. Watch this space.
Sorry about that.
…I asked Kelly Crews and Keith Mack, from our crack AT production crew, to send over storyboard template our team uses on the show.
When you’re around a lot of great art all day, like at any Frederator production, you start taking things for granted. Even the offhanded but wonderful scribbles of artists scribbling each other. But, for some reason, a couple of weeks ago at Adventure Time, I had a flash and actually looked up at Pen’s door.
Board for “Evicted!” with work from Sean Jimenez and Pat McHale. This episode marks the introduction of Marceline the Vampire Queen.
