Creating vector art animation puppets of the Cosmos gang was only the start of my Odyssey Of Awesome - there also happened to be a literal menagerie of monsters, bit-player Cosmosians, props, visual in-jokes and other graphical sheninanonsense to consider! Thus, I embarked on a major campaign of sketching everything that needed to feature in the Survival Guide, in whatever capacity it was required: whether it was shot-specific character models for Artie, Gene, Ax and Co. (usually including some form of animation functionality), the monsters that menaced our protagonists (sometimes animation-capable, sometimes merely still images), or the vehicles, furniture, buildings, signs and assorted movie set decoration that gave the foregrounds, midgrounds and backgrounds a bit of 'this is better than a freakin' blank screen' get-up-and-go-ness. As you can see, it took quite a number of pages to assemble everything I needed - and this assortment doesn't even include the backgrounds I sketched out for the characters, props etc. to act out their Llama dramas on!
