Character designs: Ali and Ollie

Around a week or so ago I was directed by lovely & supportive fellow Twitterer @ to a fantastic opportunity run over on Northumberland National Parks website.  The organisation put a call out for an illustrator to create characters for their website & printed material and of course I jumped at the chance to submit something. Was over the moon to find out about the call as it as right up my street and without the 'heads up' from Janet, i would never have known. So many thanks @!
To help with the selection process illustrators were asked to submit a design for a female, outdoorsy, adventurous & approachable character with an animal partner in crime, preferably one native to North East England.
They received loads of submissions and unfortunately I was not the chosen illustrator but despite this i'm still really glad I took part; creating the character was really fun, plus its another one for the portfolio. Congratulations to the whoever was picked!

I was hoping to share these images with you last Friday but only finished them on Monday so instead here they are now. I decided to name the character Adventure Ali and Ollie Otter.

Happy Friday. I'll be off to town this week to battle the crowds and finish the last of the Christmas shopping. Byee!
