The Awesomes

Back in 2007 I was hired by Lorne Michaels’ production company, Broadway Video, to flesh out some character designs for an animated series pitch. Created and written by Seth Meyers and Michael Shoemaker, it was a superhero-themed comedy that was to be voiced by various Saturday Night Live alumni (whom some of the designs were based on).

The show is finally set to launch on Hulu in August 2013, although the character designs have since been re-done by a different artist. It was a fun project, so I hope it does well. If you’re curious about what the original pitch looked like, here are my first designs for The Awesomes…
