So since the trip to New York got cancelled (all thanks to British Airways striking, and THEN more volcanic ash...), I decided to use my time wisely and taking Fig Taylors advice to characterise some generic characters which would be recognisable to authors, so they see the illustration 'blindly' for what it is without trying to understand a concept.
Here's day 1 of 14. Some of them are more conceptual than others, some are people, some aren't. Here we go. First up? Something simple.
Puss In Boots.
