Pub characters... bottoms up!

You may be surprised to know that as well as illustrating children's books I sometimes get one or two odd commissions and this is one I did for a pub - yes a pub! 

The pub is called The French Horn and the landlord wanted an early 19th-century/Regency character with a French horn for his website an also for the pub too. 

This was actually quite fun and is an on-going project and so I will be doing many more versions this character.

Here are the initial thumbnail sketches.

Then the client chose what colours he wanted 
and this case he liked both!
