Twisted Whiskers Visual Development

Visual Development for the TV show "Twisted Whiskers." The show is currently airing in France and will air on the BBC this spring. Here are a few characters that I designed early on, as well as layouts of various settings. This is an early version of the character Fleebis.

My favorite character, Broken Bear.

Ird the Bird makes an appearance in every episode.


Early design of Flouncy.

Preliminary turn of smidgeon, the mouse.


This is Claude, one of the few humans in the show (above). You only ever see him from the neck down.

Am guessing you are a massive fan of Stephen King and the Dark Tower series... have many picked up on it?

Jeff Harter said...

Thanks Jay, The bear is funny. This character sounds a bit like Tom Brokaw in the show.

Hey Carl, I do like Stephan King. That guy is a writing machine and I think he has influenced just about everyone living in the past 30 or so years. As far as him influencing me, sure. Although probably more on a subconscious level, as much as Tex Avery, Chevy Chase, or Bill Waterson has too, I suppose. Loved the movies the Shining and Misery. Loved Stand By Me. Think the last books I read were by King were Cujo, Fire Starter, or maybe it was Christine. I can't remember... it's been while. Tried to read the Stand but never finished. I'll have to read the Dark Tower series to know what you mean though!
