It’s Bunny Month

This Illustration is a workshop project which helps me add some extra pieces to my illustration portfolio. The subject is based on a story excerpt by Zoë Tucker. This is my interpretation of the two bunnies going on an adventure in the desert.

For those of you who are curious, the workshop is the “Make Art That Sells Character Bootcamp.” MATS workshops are very intense and not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure. I like that they are challenging and force me to step up my game.

Coco Moloko figurine

This is the finished figurine before I bake it. I really should do a maquette of my characters because it makes drawing them a lot easier when there is a model. I find that I can translate the idea in my head to clay much better, too.

Plus working with clay is so relaxing. Off to the oven!

Here is the stuffed version of my Coco Moloko using what I had around my studio. I thought about going to buy glittery fabric for the frosting, or even just getting another color for the frosting and a different pink for the feet, but in the end I just used what I had in the studio. There are some things I would tweak if I made another one of these. Plus I would explore how to make other flavors. LOL

I also took Coco’s photo with the two kitties I made last year around Halloween. Both kitties were made from homemade patterns that I have been experimenting with.

The second part of the assignment was to create a toy idea for the donut character, Coco Moloko by Zoë Tucker. I started to create a small sculpture and then went back and reread the assignment and it said STUFFED. Drat. I quickly drew this using Procreate and then I proceeded to make a doll which I finished yesterday.

Here is the digital pattern design. I did make a more detailed version for making my doll, but this is the simplified version.

I am taking an illustrator’s workshop and we were given an assignment to illustrate a donut character created by Zoë Tucker.

Here is my version of Coco Moloko.
