I did quite a few storyboard drawings for Cars 2 on the Explorer. Usually I do these kind of illustrations in pencil, but this time I used Flash for the job. There was a ton of work to do, so keeping the sketches loose and quick was the way to go.
That’s Finn McMissile in the foreground (above). He was voiced by Michael Caine -one of my favorite actors. My father said he went to acting school with him in London. I’m not sure if it’s true or not, but it makes a good story.
If you like Michael Caine, check out a movie he did in 1981 called The Hand. Caine plays a comic book artist who loses his drawing hand in a freak accident. Then Caine loses his mind and starts murdering people… or is it THE HAND?!?!
