The League of Cartoonists group on Facebook posts a new drawing prompt every other day. A recent one was “Learned Elephant”. I liked how my initial sketch turned out so I decided to polish it up and experiment a bit with some color and texture effects in Photoshop.

Goldfish Plush

A couple of years ago Goldfish Swim Schools hired me to design a mascot named Bubbles. They liked him so much that, unbeknownst to me, they even made him into a plush! It was pretty cool when they sent me my very own Bubbles. He’s a welcome addition to my studio display shelf.

If you own a business, a mascot might be a great way to connect with your audience and increase brand awareness. Check out some of the benefits of using a mascot. If you are thinking it might be something you want to try, I’ve got a free questionnaire you can download to help you think more about how a mascot could help your specific needs.
