Steve Hornung works at “The Creative Individual” (a Vancouver based company) as a graphic designer and artisan ; Steve has posted a couple of short rough vignettes as character introductions for his new show “2626”. Steve’s goal is to release short clips based on character developement prior to putting out a full episode. He explained to me through an email many of colourful characters he has planned that inhabit 2626, it sounds and looks like this show is going to be amazing! Steve works on these clips with another friend, and they hope to release a full episode real soon. Subscribe to his account on Youtube.
