My Cylon drawing might be on a television show to be aired in late June 2015.
I was contacted by a lady who works for Fifth Ground Entertainment, and she asked if they could use my Cylon drawing in an upcoming episode of their "Reelside" program, and I said yes.
You can watch a trailer of the upcoming episode here on You Tube (my artwork does not
appear in the trailer, however, not that I could see):
Reelside Episode 104 "Science Fiction" Ft. Vincenzo Natali, Graeme Manson, Michael Hogan - Trailer
From the information below the video on their You Tube video page:
Episode 1x04 airs Thursday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO Canada on The Movie Network. Available on TMN GO starting June 26.Fifth Ground Entertainment's Reelside page
I sent the lady my art files last Friday (June 20, 2015), but so far have not heard from her. I e-mailed her again on Monday to ask if she received the files. I did not get a response.
I then e-mailed the Fifth Ground information e-mail address to check on the status of this project and so far have not received a reply.
I am assuming at this point that my art will be used in the episode but am not totally sure because I've not had a confirmation since sending the art in on the 20th.
I find it interesting that I've been approached by various authors or TV shows to use my artwork over the past few years.
Most of the art you see in my gallery I've made for personal reasons, mainly to cope with the loss of someone very close to me who passed away a few years ago.
In the context of that, sometimes I like to draw things I remember that made me happy from childhood, and one of those things was the television series Battlestar Galactica (I refer to the original American television series, starring Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict,
and Lorne Greene).
The Reelside program airs on a Canadian network ("The Movie Network"), apparently, which I don't have access to, so I cannot watch the episode on television. I hope they later upload the episode to You Tube or somewhere later so I can watch it over the internet.
I'm not sure if this art will appear in the show or not, but the lady said they did want to use it, and I sent them the art files in the sizes and formats she requested.
Here is the artwork of mine the television people were interested in using - the one on the far left (that drawing is actually three separate Illustrator files composited into one in Photoshop): Update:
I heard from the lady who works for the TV show today (June 25th). Unfortunately, my BSG art did not make it into the TV show, but she says that the company may want to use some of my art in future episodes.
I wrote a more detailed update at the bottom of my graphic design / art blog here, if you would like to read more:My Battlestar Galactica Art Might Be Used on a TV Show
