Things I have done at my day job.

o every now and then I am asked to make something at work, usually a birthday crown but some times it's not.  

This is a cardboard TV i was asked to make for no screens week.  I don't know what has become of it I suggested they used it as a pinata and have TV Guide pages come out.

So every now and then I have to make some birthday crowns for the kiddies and I use it as little design exercise.

 

I was asked to do a candy theme crown and for my references I looked at images of Reck it Ralph and an older version off Candyland.

Bunnicula is a series of books written by james and Deborah Howe. The stories revolving around events that occur after a dark and stormy night the Monroe family find a black and white bunny.  The narrative of the stories is told by the other monroe pets, primarily the dog Harold, as they deal with vegetable juice sucking bunny.

This was for a larger kid who did not want a crown. He instead wanted me to draw a picture of the characters from the clever, witty, funny and beautifully show Gravity Falls from the Disney channel.  For those who do not know, Gravity Falls revolves around the characters Dipper and Mabel Pines as they spend the summer visiting there misery great uncle (Gruncle) Stan, and explore the many mysteries, conspiracies, and bizarre antics of Gravity Falls Oregon. Gravity Falls is created by Alex Hirsch a former writer for the Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack
