A day off of work. Ideas percolating. The want to create something. I made these little guys while sketching for a logo. In a video game prototype here. And they showed up again in a birthday card. Then some of them got together to bring in the new year. And one of them was late. I sympathized with her. I hate being late. I’m not sure why I’m drawn to characters without mouth-lines. Does that say something about me? I spent a small portion of this afternoon improvising in the form of cartoon. I named her Shelby. I decided all the characters in this world are named after streets I’ve lived on. She’s a penguin. She commutes by balloon. She enjoys coffee as much as I do.
