Scarlet Velocity Podcast – Talking about Flashpoint


My friend Jay Shepard invited me to be a guest on his podcast, Scarlet Velocity. He co-hosts with Josh Stolte. They discuss The Flash tv series every week. Since the season is over, they decided to do a Summer Special featuring Flashpoint, a comic and animated movie featuring the Flash. I drew some of the storyboards for the animated version. You can hear me talk with Jay and Josh about the show and the process of storyboarding.
