(Project 1) | Menagerie VS. Ambiguous Space

A tough question when first thought of… As a lot of good ideas come to mind when pondering both topics. However, my mind gently leans towards Menagerie. Purely for the fact that I have never been assigned to do a project like it, primarily due to working more in a graphic design and advertising focus based more on a business / selling aspect of design. I am ecstatic to be able to go away from that business / selling focus a bit, and finally able to just make some cool stuff! (hopefully)

(inspiration below)

I keep up on a lot of artists that I like using Instagram, Tumblr, and random other sites. But the artist’s that I thought of the most when thinking about creating a character line were primarily from Instagram.

Those being,

Craig Gleason

Lately my “doodles” and sketches have been formulating more of a mysterious people dynamic which I quite enjoy. (another factor that made me lean towards formulating characters)

I think that going in a direction more towards, a possible (North, South, East, West) or (earth, fire, water, wind) guardians of some sort.

Or a group of bad guys of sorts, like the bad guys club above (Craig Gleason).

Stay tuned…

More to come, next week.
