Friar’s Club – Monk Character Design and Animated GIFs Champagne Juggling Monk
In 2012 I had the distinct honor of being asked by the legendary New York Friar’s Club, to create a cartoon character version of the club’s signature monk and a series of cartoons and animations for the official Friar’s Club website.
The briefing required animations and graphics featuring the monk in all kinds of different situations and poses to be placed on the homepage and also some special custom monks featuring caricatured faces of recognizable “brothers”.
Even the furniture such as the wooden bar and the pool table at which the Jackie Gleason monk is playing had to be recognizable.
As a previous member of the National Cartoonists Society, I had the pleasure of attending several Christmas brunches at the Los Angeles branch of the club, so it was a particular pleasure to be able to contribute to the Friar’s cause.
IMPORTANT! Some of these GIFs are showing weird boxy flashing animation on some displays which are NOT there in the original.
The original GIFs play nice and smoothly – you can see them by clicking on each image or by downloading them to your computer.
(This must be some kind of WordPress Bug. Sorry I can’t get rid of it here. If you know what settings I need to change, please contact me.)
Trying out the swanky Editor in the WordPress iPhone app and using this opportunity to point out that there has been a major site update. All categories have been updated with new artwork and the entire navigation and presentation has been given a new look as well.
I hope you enjoy some of the new illustrations, designs and cartoons and please stay tuned, because there will be new posts coming very shortly as well as a new newsletter update.
