“Team LAWA” Aviator Butterfly Cartoon Character Mascot

Team Lawa Aviator Butterfly Cartoon Mascot Character Illustration Coghill

This aviator butterfly custom cartoon character mascot illustration was created for the Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) Community Relations Division employee volunteer program.

The mascot was to be a blue butterfly character based on the El Segundo Blue Butterfly which is native to the area and a part of the environmental mission of the organization. They loved my aviator bird cartoon logo and wanted something along the same lines — wearing goggles, hat, and a scarf with the words “Team LAWA” on it.

The final art very closely resembles the initial sketch, and the biggest challenge was making a pattern for the wings that wasn’t too busy or detailed and looked like a butterfly pattern that resembled the actual butterfly itself.
