A couple years ago Shobo and I decided to pitch an animated TV show to an African TV network. The working title was Ekologue with the story set in the near future of Lagos, Nigeria and the currently under construction, Eko city. We had plot outlines, a show bible, character breakdowns, and quite a bit of visual development completed. The pitch ended up being a success, but for now the project has been shelved for various reasons. I thought I'd share some of the visual development that resulted from the project. Ekologue promised to cover a good breadth of the Nigerian human perspective and best of all, a look at how Lagosians would spin sci-fi tropes in their own unique way.
I finished a few more pieces illustrating set pieces that gave you a better idea of the world these characters lived in, but some other time maybe. Enjoy.
