Character Design by Geo Parkin

Geo Parkin has been illustrating and cartooning professionally since 1984. So it comes as no surprise that he’s had a ton of experience drawing and designing characters. He knows all of the ins and outs of character design and pays extra special attention to many aspects necessary to creating a successful character.  Check out a few examples of his work below.
