I've realized that Rocket Baby really isn't a baby and that he is a young boy who loves rockets and exploration and should have a real name! I think I have one but I need to mull it around a bit and see how it fits as I work on his adventures.
Stay tuned for the announcement!
In the meantime, here is a draft of the new logo. I think his name will go on the logo....but I just haven't decided yet. Naming your character is really hard!!
Don't forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay in the loop about Rocket Baby and Burt's adventures.
Also, if you can guess the introduction theme for the animation short, you could win a Burt the Bunny book! Go to my Instagram account to see the pics and hints!
Warning: You will be subjected to photos of my favorite little person - my grandson!! :-)
I'm still working away on my animated short. I ended up changing the look of the rocket. I wanted to update it but still keep it "retro" and something Rocket Baby would have made in his basement. Okay, so he didn't actually build it in a basement, I mean that would be silly. How would he launch it from there? Soooo.....now I can't wait for you to see where he launches it from!
I have found that animation really opens up more storytelling and I'm excited to show more about Rocket Baby and his friends. Where they live, other friends to introduce, and of course, more adventures!
In the meantime, please enjoy a FREE download of Park Hopping with Burt the Bunny available from November 12th-14th.
