ESPN: Prince Of The Court
Creative Direction, Art Direction, 2D Animation for TV Documentary
ESPN celebrates Prince's lifelong love of basketball, with stories from his Central High basketball coach, Sheila E., and Micki Free — who took part in the now-famous "Shirts vs. Blouses" game. I was approached by ESPN to create a series of illustrated animation sequences to depict some of these stories.
I could not have created this without the talented hand of Lester Chan who adapted my initial style frames and created a powerful lyrical drawing style which set the tone for the piece.
