Inspector Abernathy: Dream Police


“Inspector Abernathy” is an idea I had while riding the bus to work one day in 2012.

Inspired partly by the vivid dreams and nightmares that my wife often describes to me, I wanted to create a character that would act as a protector against horrific nightmares.

Inspector Abernathy, of the Dreamworld Police Bureau, is the mental construct of a young girl named Adeline. Abernathy’s purpose is to protect Adeline from the nightmares that plague her subconscious, and often keep her awake.

This is a concept sketch created in Adobe Illustrator, that I intend to use in an After Effects animated video that I am currently storyboarding.

There’s some good stuff coming soon, so stay tuned.
