Glofone Characters

For the past few months I've been working a new project, developing some cartoon characters for a new children's product. It's early days yet so it's probably best not to give away too many details but for a little more info and to see how some of my designs have been colourised and digitised you can check out Go With The Glo on Twitter – although, being a Twitter page, it also full of some rather randomness so you will have to sift through to find the relevant images.

The initial brief for the project called for the development of a few characters that were loosely based upon insects (to see the full set of early working drawings and how the characters developed check out my doodle blog) but they soon evolved into something a little more chimeric. The first character to break from the insect formula was a green chappy called Fugley. Here's a small model that I made of him.

And this picy shows him just before he got his green make-over; in a shade of ghastly green that some may recall from my And When I'm a Man sculpture. See – it all ties in (and who said my work was too diverse).

Here are a some pages of more recent character ideas but as I said, you can see all the working drawings and evolution of the characters in my doodle blog.
