The Client

From the 1997, this is my first sketches of the client herself. Nizzibet and I were flown down to Berkeley to meet with the client and the woman doing her media development. We spent the day with the four of us in a room. Me sketching. Nizzibet tossing around story ideas and concepts with the client and the media developer. There was a big disconnect in that Nizz is a storyteller, she tells stories that have themes, that concern life changing experiences for the characters within them. The client wanted a series of events that were lively and flashy, that featured her characters and was sort of educational. I got the feeling that the client was a little annoyed that she couldn’t just tell us what to do and be done with it.
