Created for Planet Pulp's Birth Year theme, a bit of a mashup of two things that came out the year I was born — Superman vs Space Invaders.
I've also included a little close-up/process of how I made Superman. I sketched out a couple of different options for the head but in the end I went with the simpler profile view. Initially, I was thinking it would all be in the classic Superman blue and red, before deciding to make the whole thing in a retro video game crt-screen green.
Simon took our initial concept to very loose script and created a list of illustrations we needed to make our whiteboard video simply work. He delivered the first few illustrations in sketch form, and we knew he was going to nail it. On budget and on time every step of the way, Simon was not only a genius illustrator but a lovely person to work with. He has a talent for taking the everyday and making it sing. He delighted our audience with his clever and cute characters, and went beyond what we thought was even possible. We'd work with him again in a heartbeat. Jennifer del Greco, pndu.org
