Johnny Shortwave is a black-and-white feature length film that was shot in late 1988 and early 1989.
Early in the design phase I grabbed a stick of charcoal and quickly whipped up what I called an "Atmosphere Sketch". As depicted in the screenplay, the future is not rosy in more ways than one, which is what I tried to convey in the drawing.
I'll have more material from Johnny Shortwave very soon....
