This little guy was one of my first characters for the cool KIDS – that was way before I even came up with the name and concept.

He is a cute one, a bit to the chubby side but clever and always up for a laugh.

There was a time I though he would be the perfect mascot for
What do you think?
Would he be a good mascot?

(And just if you are wondering: one writes “Brasil” like that in Brazil. I might have plenty of spelling mistakes in here, but that is not one of them).



Fingeralphabet coolKIDS

The coolKIDS illustrations are part of a project for children who are confronted with the sign language alphabet at a later point in their life.

There is a lot of material out there for very young children, and then there is the more neutral material for adults. So far I have seen little of interest between these two aspects, especially not for young people in the age where hero figures become more important and self valor and self-esteem are questioned for the first time.

I hope that the coolKIDS manage to fill this gap in a meaningful way, by providing material that celebrates the hand signs as something cool to know for kids of all backgrounds. A knowledge that is supposed to make you more rather than less interesting.

Two digital books are being prepared right now by LegendaryMedia and myself: a German and an American version of the Fingeralphabet coolKIDS.
