The Walrus and The Carpenter


The time has come,' the Walrus said,
      To talk of many things:
Of shoes — and ships — and sealing-wax —
      Of cabbages — and kings —
And why the sea is boiling hot —
      And whether pigs have wings.'
                     
 - Lewis Carroll

Alice and the Duchess


     "You ca'n't think how glad I am to see you again, you dear old thing!" said the Duchess, as she tucked her arm affectionately into Alice's, and they walked off together.
      Alice was very glad to find her in such a pleasant temper, and thought to herself that perhaps it was only the pepper that had made her so savage when they met in the kitchen.

- Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Royal Arts Academy: Leroy the Lion





Leroy, the Lion who would be King. 
Back in 2011 I was asked to create a simple black and white image to be displayed on t-shirts to help advertise the summer programs being offered at the Royal Arts Academy. I didn't want a grinning sun with sunglasses or some other silly seasonal graphic i'd always seen used for summer advertising. Not only would that be stereotypical but it would limit itself to being used for only this one purpose. I wanted something that would have wide appeal and if it caught on could be reused over and over. I decided we needed a mascot, and the visual of a lion in a crown had long been floating around in my mind. This would turn out to be a fun challenge; I'd need to create my own version of a cartoon lion who wouldn't instantly make the viewer think of the Disney's own Lion King. After a day or two of sketching, Leroy was born! The school's owners and students instantly loved him and he has become the mascot I hoped he would be, appearing each year on summer flyers and shirts and eventually all major advertising.
