Day 17 – Crazy Red
I am very excited today. The idea for today’s character has come to me early on in the day and I have been itching to play around in Illustrator all day. Night falls on Sydney and I finally have my chance. I know exactly what I am going to create. I have created it a thousand times in my head during the day. While I am designing this little guy and it takes me just under half an hour, his story becomes clear to me too. Today I present you with the first of the "Chipper" characters.
This guy lives on the planet Pantonia [I can hear your hearts beating faster, you Pantone lovers!!] which is one color crazy planet. That is not all. He is as crazy as his name suggests. Crazy Red has one crazy red eyeball and very blue eyes and he is utterly color blind, which doesn’t bode well for him on Pantonia, considering he is a "Swinger" there and not a "Luxor" or "Mixer" (I can see your curiosity piqued. But you’ll have to wait to hear about the Luxors and Mixers as I design more of these Chippers in the coming days). I hope these little blurbs, stories and characters tease your imagination every day, as they do mine!
