Hard Apple :: in development

This is very much still in development, but here goes: we've been working on concept art for Hard Apple-- an animated series based on the cult crime novels of Jerome Charyn. At it's center is Isaac Sidel, a brainy Manhattan detective, and a gritty mix of characters bringing to life the five boroughs of New York City and its many dissonant sub-cultures. It's about family and tribal allegiances and how the bonds that tie can, in an instant, turn into people trying to slit each other’s throats. It is a universe riddled with risk and betrayal as everyone desperately tries to master the art of simply staying alive.

  1. Animated series?? Is this concept art thats going to be worked into a series? The amount of detail thats in these is really unreal. awesome job. The drawing style on the first image is killer as well. Reminds me of asterios polyp.

  2. Amazing and inspiring! Look forward to seeing it on the screen in motion. This could easily be an HBO, AMC, or SHOWTIME show as well.
