Hell in a Cell with Samoa Joe, AJ and Santo!

I recently designed storybook illustrations for WWE's "Hell in a Cell" on SmackDown LIVE, Sept 11, 2018.

Samoa Joe brings ill will on his opponent AJ Styles, reading a disturbing children's book while AJ's wife and daughter are in the wings. The pages contain illustrated vignettes painted by me. 

Rarely do my actual illustrations appear on a televised broadcast. Here is one of those moments....and I emphasize the "moment" in momentary. See for yourself as the illustrations quickly cross dissolve into video footage.

It's a pleasure to work with such a great organization as WWE.  The assignments are a change of pace from storyboards, and they give me an opportunity to play around a little more than usual with the finished frames.
