Created creative and fun character from the start and was extremely responsive to feedback and adjustments along the way!
BROXinc should have been the first designer I went with. I look forward to having him illustrate my children's book!

I want a new Santa illustration / character to use as a logo and as an in-app character that gives you instructions. To be honest, I love my current logo but I do not own the exclusive rights. Open minded stylistically, but here is what I believe I am looking for:
- Head shot of Santa (don't need body)
- More cartoon than realistic, broadly appealing style
- This is for adults, but obviously Christmas brings people back to their childhood
- Fits in square dimensions for app logo
- 2 character states:
(1) shhh... (finger in front of mouth because santa will keep your secret)
(2) santa is speaking to you (to give you instructions)
bonus: (i.e. I don't need these)
- other states of santa (smile? ho-ho-ho-ing?)
- other christmas items with matching style (tree, presents, Mrs Claus, reindeer, gingerbread man, snowman, etc)
