Here’s a little character I vectorized up today for the fun of it. He’s been hanging around on my computer as a scanned in sketch for a long time now.

Mean Bite!

So down in Phoenix Arizona we have a lot of Jesus freaks around, and it seems they all love to wear their affiliations on their sleeves. Many of the weirdo Christian churches down here try to brand themselves very modernly and with a lot of design aesthetics involved so…

It got me thinking the other day, are you a bigger marketing/branding sucker for being “sucked in” so to speak by a religion or by a product?

I think definitely you are by being sucked into a church versus a product or service. That is assuming the brand actually makes the difference for you in determining if and what church you go to. I guess it’s a stretch but it got me thinking anyway.

Take this wacky place for instance. Cornerstone if you didn’t know any better you could mistake this for any run of the mill cheesey web design shop. Weird!

Well my Mojizu character design “The Angler” ended up getting smoked in the moji-war by about 20 votes or so I think, oh well, not suprising after seeing the ones that usually win.

I have several other dudes in the hot moji’s section as well so hopefully they’ll make it into some upcoming wars.
