Why is my Logo a rabbit?
Good question. When I was first experimenting with character designs and animation I owned a rabbit named Watson. He was my inspiration for the entirety of his life. The amount of character that he showed was amazing to me. By drawing him over and over I learned to show character through key visual elements, while still being able to keep the design simple. He began my journey as an artist and so I like to keep him present in my work.
