This shows my process from my initial sketch through to my final iteration of the Blue Jay mascot, with input from Bruiser's Principal Designer, Lucas Hawk.
Cardinal Mascot created for Bruiser Studios. It works for an athletic mascot, but I left the swooping lines to imply the wing and rest of the bird and to add a bit of elegance to an otherwise ordinary mascot.

Process sheet for a cougar mascot. Starting with an initial drawing, through refinements.
Greyhound mascot - my high school mascot was a greyhound and there weren't a lot of options available. I wanted to do the greyhound running, but show its speed and power as well.
Process sheet for a knight mascot. Initial drawings through changes. This needs further refinements before it can be finalized, but I like the unique look for this knight and I'm hopeful I can refine it to something that really works well.

Illustration of the Mount Pleasant Pier and Cooper River Bridge for a t-shirt illustration. It could actually use one more dark gray, but the client wanted a specific number of colors and didn't want to use halftones of black overprinting a gray to make a darker version.

A sketch of a Babirusa using Illustrator for the Daily Zoodle project. I approached it with the idea of digital pointillism to see what would work. It needed some lines as well, but I like the result.
