Fairly Odd Parents title cards


One of my many responsibilities on the show is to come up with title card concepts. Here are a few that I've done in the last year or so. They usually begin with a rough concept sketch and then if selected are then taken to a finished rough that is then cleaned up and colored. Staging and working out the typography are the most challenging and fun parts of designing the title cards. And as always great color from my friends Kaz Aizawa, Alex Deligiannis, Dan Chesser, Kelly Chan and Kristin Donner. They always take my ideas and make them come to life..! Also thx to Eirik Paye for his great rough clean up on a few of these.

I love how the title cards came out this season! The Poltergeist (Poltergeeks) illustration was one of my favorites (I think Dan did the color on that)...you guys outdid yourselves!

thx jay...yeah that was a hard one, working out that cheese type was tough.

Thanks Isaac, yeah Dan did an great job on that one. It's pretty small here put the steam he put coming off of the TV set was a nice touch!

thx also to you guys for your solid clean ups!

Hey Gord,
These look great! They remind me of all the title cards I had to do on the Wayside Show,... they're always lots of fun.
You've nailed some awesome concepts!
