Puritans & Indians

One of the first things I did when I started designing "Time Turkeys" is ask my friend CS to take a pass at the cast of characters. He did a series of drawings that really raised the bar on the overall look of the film. His designs have a wonderful 50s Disney look to them and they definitely fit the irreverent tone of the film.

Secondary Characters - "TIme Turkeys"

The scientists and humans were threatening. I saw the pilgrims as analogous to "starving rats' and the Indians should be shown to live in harmony with their surroundings and the turkeys. CS did exactly that and more!

I really loved the designs for the pilgrims. Really pushing their characteristics to resemble sick rats was fitting as they lived in the salvaged remains of the Mayflower.
