whiff & whaff

What started as one kiwi mascot soon separated into two personalities. This happens to me all the time, show a client different versions to pick from and you are asking for trouble <smile>. One angelic and the other, well let’s just say he plays to win.

I created these mascots for Table Tennis New Zealand and the World Veterans Championship to be held this year.  Our kiwi is the national icon/bird of NZ and having a chance to put my stamp on a version was thrilling.  These two were hand drawn in illustrator and using a  wacom tablet. Created to be vector illustrations lets them be enlarged to any size without distortion and gives them the freedom for complex changes to posture and dress.

I don’t often have time for hand drawn illustrations, but when i do, I enjoy it.
