Portfolio Boost~!

I am very proud to say I've received a great opportunity recently to do some illustration and design work!

A former teacher of mine is taking part, as the sole Nova Scotian cyclist, in the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride!

She had intended to take some popular children's characters such as Muppets, Sesame Street and Disney characters and put them on her jersey but there were copyright issues. So, in came my opportunity! I was able to create a character and a series of images to be put on her jersey!

I put a lot of thought into it and came up with a little orange and blue tiger~! The character seems to be a hit! I'm so excited and I feel great for helping out for such a great cause.

The best part of the whole experience is how good this will look in my portfolio and also the fact I will be getting one of the jerseys with my tiger on it! I cannot wait to see how they turn out.

In different news I am home sick for the day :(
So I guess I'd best get my bum back to bed for some R and R.

Have a lovely week!
