How Brian Eisenstadt started their other graphic design journey

Company name

Smartass Spirituality

Overview

Let's see - I'm half uber neurotic and half Gandhi. I write - and hopefully touch and move and open humanoids up to spiritual possibilities; to that sense that there's more to us, to the world, than 'meets the eye (or the ear or the nose).

I just extended the contest another day (2nd time) but this time just to work on revisions with Groover.

Think Woody Allen and Buddha or Bart Simpson and Jesus. Somewhere in there is where I come from when I write "right" - that is, when I can connect to that part of me that isn't totally insane.

And, I promise I am the type of humanoid who will leave timely feedback and who appreciates real art, real creativity.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Really any semi-adult human creature who is even slightly open to spiritual insights, who wants to stick a toe in that water and likes some good, raunchy, biting laughs along the way.

This is really an updated version of Zen (which is about as smartassed as you can get), 21st Century Jewish/Buddhist style (or 'JewBu' as I like to call me - yup, I talk to myself all the time).

Requirements

I think I'm looking for a cartoonish-type character that equally conveys both aspects --the 'smartass' and the 'spiritual'.

At first, I was leaning towards a female character because I use my Mom as both a muse and a foil of sorts; but I'm open to a male if it speaks to me or, like I said before, 'gets me off' - so to speak.

One insight floating around my brain was to have the character sitting in the lotus position (spirituality aspect) with some accessories or symbolism in each hand. In the one hand, something that says (either literally or not) "yeah, I'm being all spiritual and shit" and in the other hand, something that says (again, either literally or not) "Now, exit my space."

However, and I say this as strongly as possible - I am not married to this idea or any idea. So, while it occurs to me that facial expression should be develish, semi-sarcastic, that can be conveyed in ways that haven't been created yet, at least in my mind.

And, while how this is done is wide open, that it is done is crucial to the character; well, to the whole notion of what I'm doing and what I'm centered on.

I am not color restricted but would like the option to change colors. This is largely a "feel" project for me.

In the spirit of my writings, I want this contest to be FUN and FRIENDLY.
