Corporate Mascots & Character Design


I've had the privilege of designing corporate mascots and cartoon characters for some

great companies and organizations, as well as for animated television shows and commercials.

I have also enjoyed designing TV & movie character-based "Happy Meal" toys for McDonalds and Taco Bell.


I would be honored to create something special for you.


A cartoon mascot & spokesperson created for Intel Corporation, (featured in advertising, marketing and TV commercials)

A character created for Time Warner media groups advertising.

      Character design and illustrations created for Merck Pharmaceuticals' interactive website for patient pre4scription drug questions.

Akamai Technologies, Inc. is a global web services company. Their servers handle over 35% of all website traffic. for companies like Netflix and  AWS (Amazon Web Services) Akamai's marketing division commisioned me to create two corporate mascots. The bee and the race car driver characters were both developed and used in a series of cartoons for their advertising and marketing.

AT Internet is a  French company known for its flsgship application, the Analytics Suite, which is used on approximately 35,000 websites worldwide. They hired me to develop a character to represent their services and products. Later I created a series of humorous cartoons featuring that character, which were used in their advertising and publications.


McDonald's, Taco Bell and other fast food restaurants offer "HAPPY MEAL TOYS", as tie-ins to movies and TV shows. I have enjoyed designing some of these toys for "Batman" movies, "The Tick" animated series, and other films. My daughter still has several in her room, (excellent for collecting dust.)

"Sal the Salami" corporate mascot re-created for Fortune 100 company, John Morrel Foods, which includes Armour. Ekrich, Smithfield, Nathan's Famous hot dogs, Farmland and Boars Head Meats. This project involved updating and re-creating a classic corporate mascot used to advertise several prominent brands of foods. Once the character was approved, I created nearly two dozen advertisements and safety related posters for the various companies .

"Ray", created for The University of Arizona Skin Cancer Institute


Patrick Flynn hired me when he first started, and shortly after I first started. He had an idea for a pet services company that began while he walking dogs part-time in college.. Over 15 years later, Patrick's Pet Care has grown in scope and size, and expanded into several locations in the Washington DC area. It consistently wins the Best of DC awards every year! (Can you tell I'm happy for him?) I'm still proud to do regular work for him.
