I've been drawing storyboards for 30 years. I'm pretty good at it. I’m faster than many. Always on time. I’ve never dropped the ball on a job.
Drawing style: I'm generally known as a 'people' guy. Fairly realistic, but ‘funny’, if it's called for. I used to say I wasn't a 'car' guy, but I've been drawing them for 30 years, every car there is, except for a couple of American ones. Oddly, I can't think if I've ever drawn a Ford.
I’m current on the state of popular culture, so I’ll know what you’re talking about when you reference something. I've gotten pretty good at thinking like an art director, which is to say, I can come up with stuff and visualize it for you if that helps you out. I won't be pushy about it, though. Evidently, I’m fun to work with.
In other news: I’ve been painting for 35 years. davidmellon.com will take you there. Presently I’m writing a Young Adult novel, with illustrations. I also have a comic book - published last year by Top Shelf Productions. Stuff About Sex (for guys who are not like total idiots).
