How Anthony Rubenstein started their other graphic design journey

Summary

An ironic fun and funny, hip and chic concept for media, toys, and consumer goods as appealing to pre-teens as she is to adults.

If the Green Genie were to grant you just one green wish, what would it be?

“Be careful what you wish for!” (and wishing for more wishes is just shows what a greedy jerk you are.)

Company name

Anthony Rubenstein

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Render the Green Genie, the eco-warrior princess who travels the world on her flying carpet using her magical powers to grant green wishes.  An ironic fun and funny, hip and chic concept for media, toys, andconsumer goods as appealing to pre-teens as she is to adults.

My name is Anthony Rubenstein - Tony.  I am a successful social entrepreneur, in 2003 I founded Californians for Clean Energy, the force behind the largest green referendum in history in 2006. It was supported by Barack Obama, Al Gore and Bill Clinton among others.  Like many people IMy newest initiative is the Million Green Ideas Campaign, an experiment in Crowdservice, community service by on-line and off-line social networks.  

At the moment, I'm paying for this out of my own pocket and thanks to donations by individual donors. So if I could afford to offer you thousands I would, however if it's a big success and I can provide you with more work I'll try to do so. Fair enough?

Wants

A combination of 70’s DC Comic Book/Manga/Vargas girl style character design

An ironic fun and funny, hip and chic concept for media, toys, and consumer goods as appealing to pre-teens as she is to adults.

Her Catch-Phrases :

If the Green Genie were to grant you just one green wish, what would it be? 

“Be careful what you wish for!” (and wishing for more wishes is just shows what a greedy jerk you are.) and also “Hazzah, Baba!”

She’s sexy and flirty,  smart and funny, a joker and a trickster, and unlike Barbara Eden she’s not at all stupid or bubble-brained, but she’ll pretend to be if she wants to. 

She’s got big beautiful eyes and long eye lashes.  A sparkling "bindi" where her nose meets her forehead, maybe some body-art and a belly button jewel - she's a modern girl. Her one slight imperfection is her smile which is as big as Julia Roberts’ but just a little bit crooked – a little higher on the left side than the right.

Inside, she’s a bit sad and lonely, and sometimes angry. She was once a regular Middle Eastern teenage girl named Jannah al Salaam. Her father was an engineer who got killed in war, and her mother was a teacher. She was about to be kidnapped and sexually assaulted by an evil military commander when her beautiful lakeside village was destroyed and the rest of her family and all her friends were killed in a horrible chemical release caused by irresponsible corporate polluters and corrupt government officials.

She only has 101 wishes to grant and can only grant wishes when people wish for them, so no matter how much she may want to, she can’t save the planet or the rainforest or the oceans unless people wish for it.  Unfortunately, what most people don’t realize is that wishes come from words and actions so if your words say one thing and your actions say another, you may not get the result you say you want, but the one your actions deserve, so: “Be careful what you wish for!” Also, all wishes are granted - just not always all at once.

Final Output required:  all as separate high resolution “camera-ready” PSD both Layered and flat call out all colors and provide all fonts files.

You may submit as few as two views for the contest (but be careful - actions speak louder than words)  NOTE: Final delivered product will be 4 views required:

1.    Green Genie flying on her carpet

2.    Emerging from her thrown-away bottle, lamp, whatever

3.    Granting a wish and saying “Hazzah, Baba!”

4.    Warning a bad person/ polluter/ illegal logger.  Saying her phrase: “Be careful what you wish for!” (and wishing for more wishes is just shows what a greedy jerk you are.)

**Bonus preference given to rendings that illustrate possible uses on Hoodies, shirts, re-usable water bottles or other eco-friendly products!!! If I use your design on a product as shown by your illustration $100 bonus.  MORE IMPORTANTLY:  Show me you “get the idea” and this could be the beginning of a long and successful (hopefully) relationship.  Be imaginative, give me something that makes ME think about this in a new way!

Don't want

- Not too overly voluptuous, but enough to make her a hottie
-  Not at all slutty.
- If you wouldn't pay money to read her comic or buy her on a t-shirt, then don't bother submitting your design! If you submit something cliche or hackneyed it should be because you know it's a cliche and the design is poking fun at the cliche. 
- Nothing so technically complicated that developing further into animations etc... is difficult or extra-expensive.
