Marv Newland: artist.

August 22nd, 2006

Marv Newland animation art

As promised, I wanted to start sharing some of Marv Newland’s unique vision as an artist.

In the mid-80’s we did a lot of work together for MTV and Nickelodeon, while my company was creating and developing those brands. Marv’s company, International Rocketship, was one of our favorite creative collaborators (along with one of my closest friends, our producer, blues musician Tom Pomposello).

Marv would draw up the craziest storyboards for us to do. Many we did, many we didn’t (I’ll start posting the actual animation as soon as I can transfer it). 20 years on I can’t remember why this one didn’t happen, but rather than blame my lack of vision, I’ll say our client didn’t like it.
