365 Characters Cartoon illustration of a hippie from the 80's who doesn't know that the movement has changed by Rick Ruiz-Dana Character DesignHere is another one. I’m not saying that the hippie movement didn’t bring nothing to the world, I love many of their ideas. I just wanted to do a fun character with many hopes and no money on his pockets.

05_farm_town_rat_goes_cheese_toon_by_rickR-DHere is another character. Little rat going to the big city. What he doesn’t know yet is that a tornado is coming and he is going to loose the farm.  Anyway, I like the cheese hat.

004 Umbrella Girl

04_umbrella_puddle_niña_charco_toon_by_rickR-DShe is a happy girl who only likes to play outside every time that starts raining, what is very often where she lives. On the other side, her dog just doesn’t feel like playing that much. What he doesn’t know is that there is a bowl with warm milk waiting for him when they get back home.

002 Tololoche Hero

365 characters

002_TololocheHero_artist_musician_strings_guitar_player_by_rickR-DPlaying the Tool songs on Guitar Hero was very hard… I imagine that playing them with a tololoche (a mexican acoustic bass) may be damn hard. This character is looking for more heroes so he can start a rock band that will play only with traditional instruments.

001 SpaceDog on Patrol

365 characters

001_cartoon_SpaceDog_astronaut_by_rickR-DI like characters.  Sometimes the funny ones, when I feel happy or the not so funny when I’m not.  And I love to draw and create them, even when they elude me and don´t want to be created. I dream of a day when this place gets populated with many, many characters.

…So I present you:  SpaceDog, the first of many, many characters.
