Circus Bus | Character Design | Bus Side Advertising
Developed 5 characters relating to the circus. Composition on an 18" x 5" sheet of Arches cold press 300pd watercolor board in full color, using a consistent style, in full figure with costumes, accessories, and props. For people in the city who would enjoy visiting the Circus. I illustrated and designed the characters and mocked them up on a city bus. I began sketching several pencil sketches of the characters, using gouache for opacity I began to produce full-color illustrations, that I would mock-up on a city bus in Photoshop. The outcome resembled a circus train car as you would see on a box of animal crackers.
