When Josh Hayes—original founder of Stormship—needed a new website to showcase his storyboard and illustration portfolio, he naturally turned to his good friends at Stormship. We’ve stayed close since 1992 when Josh moved out to LA to start a new career in the movie industry. Who would have guessed this alumni of Mass College of Art and Design from York, Maine would be rubbing shoulders with the elite of LA’s television and film industry. (We got to do an X-Files promo project with him once!)
