This assignment was a bit different. The client was TeldelNort Communications LLC based in Mexico. They required an illustration for their prepaid telephone card, featuring some stereotypical characters from Mexican sitcoms, such as India Maria. Not the kind of thing I get asked to do everyday and something I know precisely nothing about. Anyway here are some images they supplied me with to get the general feel together with my rough, final artwork and final card graphics, which altered my original background (Unfortunately, not for the better, in my opinion, Though I do kind of like what the designer did with the speech bubble).

Blue sky thinking is one of those hideous marketing terms that means just come up with loads of ideas no matter how crap or stupid they are, but you can apply the concept to cartooning as a way of getting out of a rut and generating some new designs.

A fun exercise is to take a photo of a famous actor or pop star or just anyone who has an interesting face and just base a character on them. Here are some I did this week. Can you work out who these are based on? As Stan Lee used to say, a "no-prize" goes to the person with the first correct answer. BTW The clue's in the file name.
