Secret Saturdays Children's Book
While dragging files off the computer for back-up I cam across these pencils from a children's book I did almost two summers ago for the Secret Saturdays line Random House was putting out. Along with a few artist from the show, including the director we did 3-4 books featuring the Saturday Clan. It's too bad the show seemed to get an early demise due to regime change and so-so sales of the toys, it was also the heart of the bad economy too, so I always wonder if that hurst TV shows when rating or sale of sponsor's products or licensing doesn't reap huge profits. Those things can have a direct impact on your pocketbook as a cartoonist or artist working on a project that suddenly gets the stink-eye, or the shit-can of non renewal. I enjoyed boarding on the show as it was like boarding a sort of "Johnny Quest" of 2009.
