In summer of 2015, I was approached by Boots Riley and Significant Productions to concept the Equisapien creature from the film Sorry to Bother You. These drawings are from a very early and fast preproduction and were eventually used in the film as protest signs and to influence the final concepts and sculpts later handled by ADI.

The Equisapien

The equisapien was pitched as a hybrid creature between a man and a horse.
