Ollie Ollie Ollie..
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.
