We are looking for a series of illustrations for our new mascot “The Grizz” for use in a variety of ways. The Grizz will write our newsletter 'News from the Grizz' and perhaps find his way onto other communications.
The Grizz imparts a wise, intelligent and statesmanlike attitude. He will have cubs, have a strong concern for clean water and the waters of the world in general. He will have a great deal of wisdom about the earth and man’s impact on the environment.
He is serious, NOT a cartoon. We think he might emerge as a sort of Smokey the Bear type figure: “Only YOU can prevent chemicals in the water...”
The illustration attached demonstrates the demeanor and artistic approach we are interested in. Please provide two illustrations that show a full body Grizz splashing through water and a full face shot illustration with his mouth open, but not growling or snarling. The Grizz is not hostile, unless you mess with the planet!
