I got the pleasure of meeting and working with Captain Sandy, who I met as an experienced professional Yacht Captain (27 years experienced) of the 154 foot super-yacht Sirocco. Later when Bravoâ€™s â€œBelow Deck Mediterraneanâ€ television show aired, I discovered she was also a reality television celebrity.
Captain Sandy is in the process of developing her branding. She hired me to create a logo for her and design a superhero comic book-style character as her branding mascot.
This mascot was designed to somewhat resemble Captain Sandy but with normal-sized female breasts and hips, yet still maintain some of the superhero comic book-style facial features and pose weâ€™ve all come to love and expect from our superheroes. Captain Sandy and I love how she turned out. I hope you do too.
The mascot will be used in a variety of ways. Here is an example of it being used in combination with her logo as a backdrop for public appearances.
As Iâ€™ve gotten to know Captain Sandy, Iâ€™ve come to admire her truly as a superhero in the field of merchant mariners. I look forward to illustrating more superhero characters, poses, Â and products as she develops her future projects and branding. Portions that I’m involved with, I will share with you her.
So stay tuned for moreâ€¦
P.S. I recommend watching Captain Sandy and Below Deck Mediterranean on the Bravo Channel…it’s really an enjoyable show!
