A selection of illustrations featuring a cartoon cow character from a recent book illustration project. Believe it or not, the book is a retirement planning book. The author was looking to create a financial planning guide that wasn’t dry and dull, and thought a cartoon character and cartoon illustrations might liven things up a bit.
This cartoon bear as lumberjack character design was created as part of a logo design for hand-crafted wood furniture maker Wissota Woods.
The client approached me on this project wanting a lumberjack character, but also wanting something a bit different. Bears are a fixture in his state of Wisconsin near Lake Wissota, so we ran with that.
