I was invited by Kidrobot last year to submit some designs to be considered for the 2011 dunny series. I was flattered that they would consider my artwork and took to the task at hand – but only having one week to work on designs made me rush a little bit, and felt I could have made even better designs had I more time. Anyway, Kidrobot rejected all my designs and since I don’t think they’ll use them in the future, decided to post them up.
This concept was based on the beautiful costumes of the Chinese opera; I tried to limit the amount of colors and intricacy of the design (so it would be easier to print on a dunny). It would come with a beard accessory that would attach to the mouth.
This concept was based on the samurai, using flat colors. It would come w/ a few accessories to really make it stand out.
This concept was based on the samurai, using shiny, metallic colors (to make it look more like armor). It would come w/ a few accessories to really make it stand out as well.

Maybe one day Kidrobot will use one of my designs; till then, I’ll just keep on trying and trying!
