CARTOON NETWORK CHARACTER DESIGNS

Here are my character designs for a Cartoon Network series. I had fun drawing these characters, but I don't think any of them made it into the show. These were done about 3 1/2 years ago.

Again, I think it's a real shame where people don't recognise fun designs. Certaianly can;t get enough of these characters, especially the clock! Looks rather similar to "Sesame Street" IMO 8-)

Chris is right on about fun designs being passed over. I dont know what the thinking was to have passed on eny of these wonderful characters. The clock really stands out.But there all very appealing.

Hey Chris and Tony--

Thanks so much to both of you! That's life in the animation biz...some stuff sticks, some doesn't. As I said, designing those characters was very enjoyable, so I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to draw them and get paid for it, too!

All look great, Mark! Looks like one of the characters was inspired by classic Chicago kid's TV star, GARFIELD GOOSE. Very cool!
