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.


Here are some storyboards from one of the sequences we talked about…
