(with YouTube Video Radio Interview with Mascot Designer Ian Marsden)
I had the distinct pleasure back in 2002 of being contacted by the organization for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in the renowned pristine alpine resort town of St. Moritz, Switzerland. I had been chosen to design the official mascot for the event.
This character design was my first foray into the world of mascot designs and logo character design and opened the door for many subsequent projects I was invited to participate in.

It’s been a while since I updated my news blog. Things have been rather quiet on the project front due to the pandemic (like for many), so I don’t have a lot of new client work to show you, but I thought I would say a quick hello.
I recently started a TikTok channel, where I mostly post recordings of live drawings (digital and analog). So if you are on there and enjoy drawings, drop by and have a look.
