Another one from the Archives

I can't remember what this was for. I'm thinking it was a coin bank maybe....possibly a shampoo bottle.... I dunno. Neither would have worked practically based on the proportions and undercuts here. Nevertheless, I actually always enjoyed doing 3D turns like this. It was always a mental challenge to think around the form and describe something that doesn't exist (except in your head) in as much detail as possible.

Snow White's hood

This was an illustration that was commissioned when we were developing assets for The Princess Toddler Dolls at DCP Toys a few years back.. We wanted to describe the kind of world that a young Snow White would have lived in if we had seen her at that age. I did the layout and if I recall, we had Al White Studio's (no relation to Snow White) do the painting. The castle in the distance represents her destiny as a Princess.

This was an idea for an anthropomorphic, character based metal detector. The idea was to get little kids interested in something that we currently only see old men in sandals and black dress socks engaging in. When I was a kid, I had a metal detector & I loved that thing! When you don't have a dime, it's an epic event when you find one. With silver at $36/oz. and gold at $1400/oz. this puppy could quickly pay for itself.
The concept went nowhere of course, but I still think it's a good idea...any entrepreneurs out there?
