The Folder of Lost Ideas

"iGod" Keyboard Character never produced.

It's been nearly two years since I launched the "Keyboard Characters" web site. When I developed all of the characters I had created one called "iGod." Due to production costs He along with several other characters I had also created were edited out of the set.

This week I was looking through my archive for other artwork and stumbled upon these two characters again. I thought I'd share them on the blog since they've never seen the light of day publicly speaking.

Righteous tunes!

I had forgotten how much time I spent trying to figure out what song Jesus should be listening too on his iPod. The first obvious choice was "Stairway to Heaven" but I opted for a "Captain and Tennille" classic in the end.

To protect and serve good design!

The "Design Cop" was edited out for two reasons. The main one being he's too "Design Industry" specific and I wanted more mainstream themes instead. The other reason was the cost.

Seeing iGod next to your About Me photo it almost looks like a self-portrait. lol.

Too bad the design police didn't make the cut. I like him a lot.

Captain & Tennille indeed! Good gravy - you're like Prince, with a vault of treasures yet to see the light of day (publicly speaking.)

Wow - The Design Police is great! Which of course then prompts me to visit the keyboard characters site. I need some light-heartedness, the monkey especially so. Thanks for sharing!
