Below are a few examples for character designs and line art illustrations that were developed for a comic strip for internal company publications. The style was to be clean and fun but also remain business like.
Clean line art, kept in black and white, with a few corporate spot colors. The story concepts would revolve around actual office themes and current projects, and sometimes also contain lighthearted tips and reminders.

Such custom designed spot illustrations can lighten up even rather dry copy and focus your attention on important passages. What’s more is that often the fee for a custom created series of illustrations is pretty much the same as what you would expect to pay for pre-existing stock art images. Except of course they look and feel custom tailored to your project and therefore elevate the production value considerably.

In this real-time video demonstration Ian shows how he creates a rough pencil sketch and adds a touch of storyboard digital marker coloring in Alias SketchBook Pro software on a Wacom Cintiq UX21. This kind of rough can be used as a loyout or scribble or in a storyboard to show the team and the client what direction you are going in, an animatic can also be created using these roughs before final art is produced. Finally the final art can be based on these sketches. There is another video based on this sketch where Ian shows how he creates final clean vector art in Adobe Illustrator on his youtube channel. Enjoy.
