Character Design

Creating characters is a long-time passion of mine. Over the years, I have found inspiration in the dozens of drawing, animation, and character design books that I have collected – and am still collecting. All have contributed to my work in some way.

Nothing makes me happier than sitting down in front of my XP-Pen tablet with a new character in mind. Each character is a personification of a single moment in my life. These moments usually have something to do with my kids – from birthdays to holidays, goofy moments to stressful ones, and everything in between, a little piece of my heart resides in each design. 

These are just some examples of my character design work. You can find my character designs for sale right here under Around the Bend Illustrations!
