I'm not sure how many of you have made it over to my group blog, Creative Juices, but I just posted on something that I thought most of you would find interesting. I had a little theory that I wanted to test. Which is that most if not all memorable cartoon characters can be reduced to a silhouette, and still be immediately recognizable. It was an extremely pleasurable exercise for me, as I think about shape, form, and positive and negative space when I design my own characters. It's so much fun to investigate character design at this level. Here's the direct link to the post.
