Designing T-Bag - The Sketches

Back to: Home page | The Making Of T-Bag

Whilst designing the various sets used throughout the series, the designer John Plant also drew various sketches of the characters and the many varied locations they visited throughout their adventures.

I have been fortunate enough to come into contact with John Plant's family and they have sold The High-T Website some of the sketches John worked on. I would like to sincerely thank them for parting with these designs, the sketches are incredibly detailed and are all hand drawn with pencil, pen and charcoal. All of these sketches can be seen below, please click on the links to load the full-sized images. These sketches cover the first five series of T-Bag.

The sketches for T-Bag Strikes Again and T-Bag Bounces Back were also provided to Revelation Films for an extra feature on the DVD releases in 2011.

These sketches have all been drawn by the designer John Plant. To see the images in their full-sized glory please click the links below.
