In February my friend Cayden introduced me to a Twitter feed called Mondo Mascots. The feed showcases some of the awesome mascots that exist in Japan (and occasionally other countries).
I scrolled through for about three minutes before I knew that I was going to draw some of these mascots. And I have. Starting with this one.
I mean, how could I not? Look at that rainbow belly! This guy also taught me a lesson about waiting long enough for the ink pen to dry before erasing pencil. You may have seen me mention it on my Twitter feed.
The second one I did was this guy, because if you don’t laugh at the current situation you’ll go insane.
The next one I did was this pink giraffe. I made the initial pink too dark, so the colours are all a bit off. But still cute.
This next one just had to be drawn. You may or may not have noticed, but I have a penchant for drawing monsters.
That’s actually the second version I did. In this first one, I was so focused on leaving white space for his eye that I forgot about his teeth, tongue and badge.
Finally, for this batch at least, is this fluffy little guy.
