The basic idea behind this project was to create two character designs based on one of the two possible character pairings and then create a story where they go on a journey and come back. The characters I chose were 2129 the Mailbox and Larry the Fireplug. The story I created is called Moving Up. Larry and 2129's corner is being moved to outerspace, where they discover that it's an elaborate plan to take over the world. They have to defeat the Moon Movers company and return their block to Earth. The story part of the project was to take seven key scenes and illustrate them. We were to imagine ourselves as working at Pixar or some other company and creating these as storyguides to pitch to the higher ups.
