Mrs. Mermaid was so happy with her new phone. She loved the pretty color because it complimented her new look. All the other phones had failed miserably. Having a cell phone underwater was a big challenge but this time it was going to be different. She had a brand new protective case and she was sure it would work.
Fish wasn’t so sure. She had seen what happens to phones underwater and didn’t trust this case anymore than she did the others. What made this case so special? She knew sooner or later it would fail and they would be on their way back to the phone store. Fish hated riding buses and she was having no part of it.

Donut Boy smiled and looked up at the bright blue summer sky. The world was filled with possibility. Neither spoke for fear of breaking the magical spell, they simply took in the moment as the ancient city transport shuttle lurched and sputtered its way up the steep gravel road. The young driver searched in vain for a gear that would ease the strain but the hissing rattling engine refused to yield. The transmission complained loudly as the shuttle belched thick black diesel exhaust into the quiet morning air.
Donut boy was the first to break the silence. “I liked yummy things”, he gleaned. Travel Mug looked away slowly shaking his aching head, a dull throbbing pain just behind his left eye caused him to blink awkwardly. A swell day…a swell day indeed
I’ve been in business a long time. For every project I create there are at least three or more sketches that are rejected along the way. It goes without saying that in that vast pile there are a few I feel shouldn’t be in there. I mean, I get it, it’s all part of the process but that doesn’t mean I have to like it .
The Bob Folder for Misfit Sketches
That’s where the Bob Folder for Misfit Sketches comes in. Not every rejected sketch makes it to the Bob Folder for Misfit Sketches just the ones that really broke my heart. Every once and a while I reach in there, grab one and work it up.
A Hotdog Logo Misfit
This is one of those ideas. It was from a project I worked on many years ago. The client wanted a hotdog character for a logo project but had no real direction in mind. He told me to just go nuts. I knew this idea was a stretch but sometimes crazy ideas spark other ideas so I submitted it along with the others. Even though this one was rejected it did spark some interesting conversations… so I guess you could say it did it’s job.
