I spent this weekend answering a call for submissions by Pictoplasma – the world’s leading festival of contemporary character design. They called for views on Bigfoot/Yeti: “one of the last mysterious entities without a clear depiction in our culture of visual overdose and instant google-search gratification“. Great thing is that some of the entries will be presented at an exhibition in Paris in December. I’m not into character design big time, but I thought I’d have a go. But even though I know my chances are slim, I don’t really care what happens with it because I had a ball doing it anyway!
∧ So Bigfoot is somewhere between man and ape. And bear? And Chriet Titulaer??
∧ I imagined Bigfoot being very self-consciousabout his big, ugly feet. A bit like myself, I don’t think they’re my most attractive feature. When bare-footed in public I tend to scrunch up my toes, as to hide them..
∧ Then I thought about how difficult it would be for him to do yoga.
