I designed thousands of backgrounds from city streets to apartment interiors for Nickelodeon's Hey Arnold! across all five seasons of the series and the theatrical movie. Here is a selection of my favorites.
Final Production Layouts
Rough Background Designs
Every new location in Hey Arnold! had to be designed before the final background layouts were drawn with clean pencil lines.
These designs were based on the story in the script, how characters were to interact in the location, and the mood of the scenes. When designing new places, I typically drew in a faster, rougher style than the finished background layouts.
