What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
I really enjoyed working on Warner Bros’ Johnny Test, George of the Jungle and Richard Scarry’sBusytown Mysteries. But the project I’m most proud of is being part of Disney’s Epic Mickey 1 and Epic Mickey2. I’m also very lucky and honored to have been published in The Art Of Epic Mickey, an art book about the ‘making of’ including the pre-production drawings and paintings for the game. This is a Time Lapse Video of me sketching Mickey vs an animatronic character for Epic Mickey 1.

“What it’s Like to Be A Storyboard Artist on The Regular Show” by Sam Spina


If you’ve ever been curious about what it’s like to storyboard for The Regular Show, here’s a very in-depth comic about what it takes to make an episode. One of the most interesting things he says at least for me is that the entire show is still done traditionally on paper, using Post-Its, white out and good ‘ol pencils!
