THE MONKEES STORYBOARD

The purpose of this assignment was to write, illustrate, and animate an informational graphic for web. This infographic is about the 1960s rock band and sitcom stars, The Monkees. This storyboard covers the key events of their career and uses colour and type inspired by the 1960s. Simple illustrations were used for the moving characters, but more detailed illustrations (pictured here) were used to introduce these real people. Make note of the small details included for die-hard Monkees fans: Peter Tork's belt is worn slightly to the side, and Mike Nesmith's golden Gretsch and unique guitar strap were re-created to exact detail.
