Toilet Tom

Toilet Tom

This is a really fun concept I created for a Story book project.  The children’s book authored by Gene Benny featured lively house hold item personified as fun characters.  One of the more interesting characters was the toilet who I call Toilet Tom.

Though we developed many other characters, I definitely enjoyed trying to make this guy work the most.  He is a very awkward shape, and getting him to be expressive and fun was a real challenge.  In the end, I think he turned out pretty well.

Although the drafts exuded some fun personality, I still feel that I could work on nailing down a more solid constructed design that has a more plausible and consistent stretch to it.  I hope you enjoy this image, and perhaps it gave you a laugh or a smile.
