Finalised a series of characters for the 'My Favourite Family', Here is few of characters, An excercise that was made a lot faster thanks for Adobe Illustrators 'width' tool, Which in most cases makes it much easier to have line vary in width. Not sure if they will be available in Oz, But be sure to keep an eye out for them if travelling through Europe.

I have had the pleasure of recently exploring my passion for character design and cartoons. I have just finalised the artwork for 'Ollie the Octopus' a kid friendly mascot for swim centres in the City of Kingston. Pretty sure I hit the brief to create a character that will appeal to children. I showed him to my own children for critique and chose to ignore Mia's request for him to be more 'pink' and more of a 'mermaid'.. Hopefully the little tadpoles will not flee in fear from Ollie, he only wants to make friends and swim (but not right after eating cake)!.. These a couple of the poses created which will be used on signage, posters invitations etc. Also looking forward to seeing Ollie made into a costume soon.
