Sean ‘Cheeks’ Galloway’s simple flowing lines lend themselves perfectly to animation with crisp shadows, distinctive silhouettes and strong exaggerated shapes. At first the work looks almost too simplistic, until you dig deeper and realize that it’s incredibly well designed, unbelievably iconic and much harder to pull off than you’d think. He’s already designed characters for the Hellboy animated series and the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon so, needless to say, he’s making his mark.
If Bruce Timm’s powerful angular designs from the Batman Animated series refined comic-based cartoons in the 90′s, Sean’s on tap to help define the look of the new millennium. Digging through his distinctive gallery is a joy and I can confidently say that any property he’s involved with is in good hands.
