I made badges!

I… *thumps chest* have made badges! (imagine that in a Tom Hanks voice, and continue for the rest of this post)

To help promote ourselves as up-and-coming Illustrators looking for work, our tutors suggested we look into unusual ways to get our name out there – something a little different from the standard business card/postcard route. I thought it would be fun to make badges (or ‘pins’ if you’re American) with my characters/web address on, and here’s what I came up with:


I think they turned out pretty well for a first batch 🙂
Featured from top to bottom:
1st Line: Mascot from my soon-to-be-website whereIdrawtheline.com, Cosmo Cat, and a Meteor Mouse
2nd Line: The Carrot Crusader and his side-kick PeeWee
3rd Line: The Carrot Crusader’s evil nemesis, Dr Potassium and Sour-faced reporter/token love interest Peachie Keen
4th Line: Name for my new website and Emo Cat, a character from my 2nd year work

Here’s a few shots of the badges in action…

 Dr Potassium Graduates

Strike that pose Emo Cat

Cosmo Cat: Relationship Guy

Please, tell Cosmo Cat all of your problem.

All that wine and she serves up tea – Dr Potassium is not impressed.

Grinning like a Cosmo Cat
