Crazy Crafts’ CeeCee goes to the next level!

Once in a while the response to a character that I have designed is met with the same enthusiasm, love and joy as I felt whilst developing it.  Crazy Crafts CeeCee is just such an example.

CeeCee began as a simple 2D character and workaround:

Client absolutely loved CeeCee and decided to turn my design into a life-sized statue for trade shows, and a soft toy for kids!

The response was amazing, the kids were entranced by the loveable and approachable CeeCee. The client decided to take it to the next level and a full sized mascot costume was created for trade shows, school functions and general branding and marketing opportunities.

Wow!  All kudos to Jan Balt the owner of Crazy Crafts for taking this cute little ball of love and running with it.  I am so proud of what CeeCee has become, I wish Jan, Crazy Crafts and CeeCee every success in the future!

Turning a conceptual character into a walking, talking mascot!

In today’s technologically advanced, social media saturated world, creating a character has become infinitely more complex.  Each character should be viable as a 3D entity for advertising and animation – which makes it perfect for developing into a mascot costume.

By working hand in glove with Mascot Ears we have brought the Northwest University’s Leopard ‘Mafika’ and many other characters to life.


Penny Character for PNA Stationers. Illustrations that go a long way…

This cute little chimp was created for PNA Stationers.  What was unique about this series of illustrations was that each illustration was created as a marionette so designers and artists could reposition the illustrations when the need arises.  That way clients gain far more milage from a single illustration.  Although I only created 4 illustrations, the applications are endless for PNA.  Looking forward to seeing new Penny iterations as they emerge.
