Hey there Hoppereenos!
By now I’m sure most of you have noticed our ever changing Banners on the site. We are very lucky and grateful to have met an artist that really gets us and our sense of humor. He’s not even in the same country nor has he ever met us in person.
In return, we’ve been given some pretty cool artistic versions of Wookiee, Alissa, and myself … Bunny to place on our site and other items (like T-shirts… Who wants a T-Shirt?). Many of you have been requesting to see them all in one place, so I wanted to share them with you all. In an Addicts Art Gallery.
I get great delight and enjoyment out of emailing our artist my creative thoughts and suggestions of what I think a Character be dressed as, or look like, or the “season”, then I send it to Alissa for her approval and any additional thoughts. Then we wait to see what he comes up with in translating those descriptions or insane thoughts into Character Drawings. He really is amazing in the way he translates it all. I think he’s as silly as me in his humor. Love that! Once we approve, he finalizes the drawings and another Addict Character Image is created.
Next, I go to work. I have the basic Character Images but now need Banners for the sites. So my creative side takes over to start crafting the background and adding many details to give the site the overall theme of the Current Event or Holiday the Characters will be placed into (who knew how many blades of grass it takes to cover an area. Lol). It’s a blast. I would have tried my hand at the Characters themselves but I don’t have the time nor, I think, the in depth ability as our artist does to do them as well. I do instead also play around with the Characters once they are complete, like Terwilliger’s Event… adding a silly bit of hair or other items to add to the overall look.
The results, some pretty cool collaborations of Characters by Milos and Banners by Bunny (Alissa did some creations too on Valentine’s Banners & one other and did a great job!)
Just for fun, I also included a few I did for the OTHER site, just in case some of you don’t venture over there but wanted to see them. 😉
There you have it. Our Addicts Art Gallery of Character Images & Banners that add to the overall fun of our site. More ARE coming. Just wait and see. 😉
(FYI, these pics and those coming were created BEFORE Alissa got a baby bump.)
So what do YOU think of the Banners? How about the Individual Characters Milos drew? Have any favorites? Let us know.
