Hello recruiters and possibles clients! While this is mostly a comics portfolio I have been branching out into storyboarding. Seeing as how similar comics and storyboards as a medium are, and how much praise I've been given for my compositions skills from past teachers and readers, I believe I will be an exceptional addition to your team!
Just to reintroduce myself, I am Jonathan Aleksey. I graduated from SVA in 2017 with a BFA in Cartooning. I've gotten awards for my college comics and have worked as an assistant/clean up artist for my teachers in the past and currently. I have also done some pro bono storyboard work for music videos. I have some basic pay rates in my commissions page but I am also open to rate discussions. You can connect me though e-mail jonnyalekseywashere(at)gmail.com or on my Linkedln
Below you will see the links to my selected storyboard work. Click on the images to go to it's full gallery. If you need more samples to get a better idea of my skills, I implore you to check out my most recent webcomic pages as they also greatly show case my composition and penciling abilities. (Oh and to any of my comic readers that found themselves here somehow, this gallery isn't really necessary for you. But you're free to look anyway.)

"J-Man" Test Boards

This is a test storyboard using my webcomics hero J-Man. Specifically the opening chase scene from #6, though reworked here. This was made to give to recruiters to show off my action, comedy, and overall story flow, since my previous commissioned work hasn't showcase my best talents (in my opinion). Please look through my other work if you're looking to hire me, just start here first.

"Everyday" music video
(Chasing my Dreams Group)

Chasing your Dreams music video. The setting was the famous Graffiti Park in Austin, TX. That inspired me to have graffiti be the main visual motif creating transitions and story elements, with the singer's images effecting others in real life.

"Focus" music video
(Chasing my Dreams Group)

Another Chasing your Dreams music video. This one is a time lapse of a woman's life from childhood to high school to adulthood. She attempts to overcome her dyslexia to become better then herself. This video is more politically charged then the previous ones.

"Mirco" music video
(Chasing my Dreams Group)

One of a few boards created for Chasing my Dreams music videos, this is for the R&B song Micro. The video follows the young singer being shrunk down into the Wonderland-esque world of her dreams.

Prison System short:
Chasing my Dreams Group

Made for the Chasing my Dreams film group, these boards detail a short meant to educate people on how the corrupt prison system targets African-Americans. A very simple art style designed like other educational shorts, moving seamlessly from slide to slide.

TV Action Scene:
SVA Assignment '16

These are boards from my storyboard class with Mr. Richards I took at SVA in Fall 2016. This assignment was based on a short action scene from a TV script he previously worked on.

Smart Mirror Ad:
SVA Assignment '16

These are boards from my storyboard class with Mr. Richards I took at SVA in Fall 2016. This is based on a comical ad for a Smart Mirror, able to work ad a large tablet.
