Character design, story conceptualization, illustration.

I wrote my thesis on whimsical art & design, and created an original character called, “Cheecho.” What started as a character design project and illustration series, evolved into the story of Cheecho and his intergalactic travels. Cheecho and his pink cat, Pancake, travel inter-dimensionally, collecting rocks, eating strange alien flowers, and traversing unusual landscapes.

I constructed a plush Cheecho doll by hand, with fabric from a local fabric shop in downtown Miami, and recycled memory foam. His facial features were sculpted out of clay and painted.
