Evolution of a Character

So I am trying to design a child version of the best mascot ever, Aubie, the Auburn Tiger. It has been tricky working on this because there are certain trademarked features of the adult Aubie that have to be present in the child Aubie.

So this is the real, official Aubie >

Tear Sheets

The Seven Deadly Sins…at a Birthday Party

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

So I am re-designing the cover for an existing book by Roald Dahl called “The Giraffe the Pelly and Me”

It is a super-cute book about the “ladderless window cleaning company” that consists of a monkey, a pelican, and a giraffe. The meet a young boy and eventually get a lifetime gig of cleaning windows for the Duke at the Hampshire mansion.
