I've just completed this job for a Dubai-based children's theatre company. She's called Suzy Sunshine and will be used in a series of educational shows.
The client supplied me with a drawing they'd done themselves that they had created for the tailor who was making the costume, but by their own admission it wasn't suitable in any way for marketing purposes.
What they were after was a friendly, vibrant cartoon character with lots of energy and appeal, so I knocked up a rough pencil sketch, got approval, and then created this finished piece.
Despite being in Dubai, the entire job was reasonably fast to turn round because the client knew exactly what she wanted and between the modern wonders of email and PayPal the information exchange and payment were swift and effortless.
The plan is to produce more Suzy Sunshines illustrations as the shows progress.
