The Triumph of the DonkeyApril 18, 2009
After much soul-searching and vote counting, it looks like the fourth new plush will be…..Envelope please….
Mr. Danny Donkey.
By the way, it’s interesting, because each time we turn one of these characters into a plush, I have to provide the plush manufacturer with what they call “turnarounds” for the characters. This is a drawing of the character from multiple angles.
This is always a struggle for me since I generally only draw my characters from one or two angles (and almost never from the rear or the side, as the manufacturer needs).
But anyways, here is what I sent them for Danny. In my notes, you will see the great confidence I have in my multi-angle drawing ability:
And here is what I had sent them earlier for Guard Duck:
Thanks to everyone who helped me pick the four new characters, which will now officially be Guard Duck, Goat, Snuffles the cat, and Danny Donkey.
P.S. And thanks to all of you that voted for the Stephan plush doll. While I, too, share your preference, there seems to be little demand for dolls of middle-aged guys with goatees. Curse this cruel world.
