Smallville Ad

In 2007, the SMALLVILLE TV show was engaged in a cross-promotion stunt with Toyota. The promotion focused on the Toyota Yaris, which Lois drove in the show. During the commercial breaks, ads featured the Yaris, mixed in with elements from the series. They wanted a piece of art to close the ad and asked DC to generate something. These are the pencils for the piece, showcasing Clark, Chloe, Lois, Green Arrow, Impulse, Cyborg, Aquaman and, in the shadows, Martian Manhunter. Actor likeness rights were not a part of the deal so the best we could do was reflect “general physical types.”
