I have had the pleasure of working for CBS Big Brother – Our House Productions, since Season 19 (2017). I started off with doing illustrations for the BB Comics competition but have been fortunate enough to work on other parts of the show! (check out my BB Comics art in my highlights on Instagram.) I have created comp illustrations to help envision game play as seen in HOH and Veto competitions, some on screen graphics and images for décor and game play bits and pieces! I can’t show my comp illustrations but I think it is safe to share some art I created that aired on TV.
This past season I created a retro car illustration for set decoration in one of the bedrooms. My car was the blue one in the middle. A fantastic artist named Tom Nguyen created the other two cars. In the briefing, we were told to create an image in the style of legendary art director Art Fitzpatrick. If you are a car enthusiast (or are old enough) you probably know who he is! Do yourself a favor and check out his huge body of work!
My car is an amalgamation of a few different models of classic cars. Since the image appears on TV, they didn’t want to work about copyrights or usage from specific companies. I don’t want to say which cars I took inspiration from but it was three different ones!
Celebrity Big Brother Season 3
Celebrity Big Brother Season 3 aired from January 26, 2022 to February 23, 2022. The Houseguests were: Carson Kressley, Todd Bridges, Shanna Moakler, Mirai Nagasu, Todrick Hall, Chris Kirkpatrick, Chris Kattan, Cynthia Bailey, Teddi Mellencamp, Lamar Odom, and Miesha Tate.
The winner was Miesha Tate and America’s Favorite Houeguest winner was Carson Kressley. Runner up was Todrick Hall.
I can’t show my comp illustrations but the on screen art I did was incredibly fun to make! I love Photoshop and did my best with the window of time I had to create parody covers for an HOH competition! I was given a briefing of what to create that generally had a sketch or mockup of what the producers wanted.
The other posters I did not do were created in house by the producers themselves or other contracted artists. Tom Nguyen did an amazing job creating the ‘animated’ movie posters. Doing caricatures of Houseguests in parody posters that had an interesting twist to them!
The HOH Club competition gameplay had the Houseguests trying to figure out what the extra added ingredient was in the celebrity endorsed cocktails! The nasty tasting beverages had them sipping and then grabbing a card from the wall and place it in front of them of what they tasted was the gross added flavor! I created the images/graphics for the cards mainly in Adobe Illustrator and a touch of Photoshop. (Not all shown below.)
I look forward to seeing what future seasons of Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother will be! I may share more of the art I have created that has aired on TV.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my website and blog!
