Men at Work... Weekend Marsupials



I started a tshirt design for a Children's program called "Leaping Little People." As per a conversation I had with the client, I did some original sketches based on a FROG theme. Someone in the organization got smart and started to think about their stuff being confused with the LEAP PAD stuff whose logo incorporates a frog.

To their concerned phone call I responded that in my head, the next logical leaping cute animal would be a kangaroo, which lead to these sketches. The client was specific about the poses of the animals. One had to have a tambourine to represent the musical end of the program. Another needed to be in the "TREE" position to reflect their yoga program. Yet another needed to be "rolling off a ball in a wheel-barrow pose" because I guess they do exercise the kids like that. Finally, part of the program teaches kids sign language, so one of the kangaroos had to be signing "I LOVE YOU."

These were presented to the client. There was a first round that went in the garbage. The more I worked on these, the more I liked them. I work with computers all week long and its really freeing to get back to a piece of paper and a pencil.

Originally, I was hired to create a logo for this client. THIS IS NO LONGER A LOGO. This is an illustration at this point. It's really a tshirt graphic.

Working this way makes me want to work on my children's book again. When I finish the final version of this, I will try and post it here. The client is also looking for these kangaroos to be animated as little bumpers in a video they are producing. That will be fun.

Well, they've hired the right guy!

Kangaroos may not be as colorful as frogs naturally, but are perfectly acceptable/believable in rainbow colors while in cartoon form. Cuuuuuuuuuuuute!
