Pre-ID Days


Long before ID I got to work with a few good fellas on a project that didn’t get a chance to take off. We did do a series of comic strips for the initial idea and was about to work on a Flash animated version but then people got full-time jobs, went back to school, or started families. I still keep in touch with these fellas from time to time.

The first character I call, Hoot Sensei, an owl who teaches self-defense using Aikido. The early concepts of Hoot Sensei was a pretty generic old short character that could kick your ass. But that was too generic so after a few more iterations I thought about giving him a Steven Seagal look but still keeping that old wise and humble character.

The second character was a challenge. Puffin’s are hard to draw. After doing many studies and drawing puffins for weeks, I got down to work to create Paco the Puffin who is a, how do you say, pretty flamboyant hair stylist.
