Blue the Dolphin {Illustration}

Introducing Blue the Dolphin! Blue is the mascot for Alvin Community College in Alvin, Texas.

ACC wanted a cartoon character representation of their mascot and were familiar with the Sammy Bearkat work that I do for Sam Houston State. So a couple of months ago we set out to create a stylized Blue character for the school to use.

Blue was actually a really challenging character to create! Who knew that dolphins were so hard to draw and not make look like a duck????

But after dozens of drawings we finally found a good look for blue - friendly, yet tough with a sense of fun.

I look forward to working with ACC again in the future to further bring Blue to life!
