HUEY is Militant, JASMINE is innocent. by LeSeanThomas HUEY is Militant, JASMINE is innocent. by LeSeanThomas
Here's some more Boondocks Pre-production artwork.

One of the things that i believe stands out about the production of The Boondocks ( and is one of the most tedious) when compared to other prime time animated comedies out there is the fact that the characters ( if you pay close attention) have several wardrobe changes through-out any point in an episode.

For the boys, when they are inside the house, the rule is they do not wear shoes.

when a day changes to night, the characters may wear pajamas. If a day passes in one episode, the characters change outfits completely. 

Above are conceptual sketches of options for Huey & Jasmine Wardrobes for Season 2 i submitted to Aaron, Seung Kim and the producers for approval.

Huey has always had a more conservative touch to urban fashion compared to Riley; Polos, military fashion w/ long sleeves, walking shoes and running shoes

Jasmine always repped a scaled back fashion style; denim, capris, sandals cardigans, velcro strap shoes. looking at J.Crew ads back then helped. We also tried to stay away from her wearing skirts or dresses in the show.

Dope man, is there a reason you didn't just copy and past the first one and adjust only the clothes?

yay can't wait. My b/f doesn't care for cartoons, anime, art in general but he watches the sh!t out of Boondocks. At least I won him over on something I love. In my years of cartoon watching, i think changing clothes helps make the characters feel more realistic. I remember watching "The Weekenders" for the first time and was like "they changed their clothes!!" It makes a difference even if ppl don't realize they changed clothes.

Thanks for sharing!
Boondocks is coming back?

TV gods don't play with my emotion like this, I want this too much.
Boondocks are back on YES. I wish they were on during that Trayvon Martin situation.

I am the stone that the builder refused
I am the visual, the inspiration
That made Lady sing the blues

I'm the spark that makes your idea bright
The same spark that lights the dark
So that you can know your left from your right

I am the ballot in your box, the bullet in the gun
The inner glow that lets you know to call your brother son
The story that just begun, the promise of what's to come
And I'mma remain a soldier till the war is won

[Judo flip...chop chop chop] :)
