When I first created Cozmo, the Little Green Dude™ as a figurine line and presented it to my employer at the time, Cast Art Industries, I had also created a lot of other humorous, alien-based scenarios to accompany the line and which also never saw the light of day.
Back in the 90’s anything and everything could be made into a figurine with modest success. Unfortunately, by the time I had created Cozmo, the figurine market was on its deathbed and, like many of my artistic efforts, suffered from poor timing. This particular doodle was one of many ideas I would do more as a brainstorming exercise.
Continuing from yesterday, here are more Christmas giftware designs I created for various lines.
The “thin” snowman is from the same line as the “thin” Santa I shared yesterday.
I’m also sharing some designs I did for a baby shoe ornament line called Baby Steps. Rather than show my drawings, I thought I’d show you the finished product from images scanned from Cast Art Industries’ catalog. I designed about a dozen of these Christmas ornaments. I also designed another dozen of these, which were non-Christmas, musical versions, and of which I’m including an image.
I had designed a line of clown figurines -called “Slapstix”- while at Cast Art Industries, back in the 1990s. I had drawn a ton of clown designs; more so than we could ever produce. I literally filled a wall with drawings.
After Cast Art closed its doors, Second Nature Designs commissioned me do a similar clown line, however, these were only busts.
Here’s one design from that line (perhaps in the future, I’ll spend an entire week posting a load of these).
