Inspiration – Clone High (Carey Yost)

During the Pre-production module I aimed to watch a few TV shows in the hopes of gaining some stylistical inspiration from them. One of this was ‘Clone High‘.

After watching the complete series I set out to track down the artist in charge of designing the characters. I discovered that this was Carey Yost, also responsible for Samurai Jack, Powerpuff Girls and Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs.

What I liked about the characters in Clone High was the interesting use of use of shapes in the characters, for example how Joan of Arcs head is perfectly flat and how JFK’s bottom juts out no matter what angle he stood towards the camera.

One of the more interesting things is the complete destuction of anatomy but rimplemented sucessfully and stylistically. The major example of this is Abe Lincolns nose, it always protrudes from the side of his face even if this means his nose appears to be behind his eyes from certain angles.
