Character Design: The Thief

Ramsay is  a terrible and terrifying person. He is a thief. He steals shadows. He steals violins. He steals your hope, and your tragedy. He gives you nothing in return. He takes things that doesn’t belong to him. He steals cars and tires. And motors and pulleys. He steals coconuts. And bananas leaves off banana trees. Ramsay is a horrible, horrible person. He has no respect, no self meaning.

Good character design is the backbone of a good media campaign. It is the persona that the company showcases to its potential and existing customers. It is the building block of a company’s identity and its brand. It is the flag bearer of the company’s ethos.

It is paramount in building a good rapport with the audience. It drives credibility and reliability. A good character is multi-dimensional. It transcends both space and time. It speaks for both the company and the customers. A good character is the perfect bridge between the company and the audience. It provokes imagination and takes the audience on a magical journey. It entices, influences and guides.

Art Protection

Someone wicked once whispered into our ears. “Art is without boundary”, said he. That got us thinking. How can we capture art if it slips through the borders?


Then he said, “Borders are porous. Imagination is seamless”.


We locked him up in the Arkham along with Gotham’s many. Yet his words echoed still. His mockery apparent. How do we capture art? And how do we stop it from escaping?

We painted murals on the walls with paint mixed with glue. We stuck our characters in papers on the pillars.

We put them on canvases and framed them for the studio wall. We pinned them and then hung them in cluster small.

But to hold on to things that doesn’t move is easy. What will we do with the ones we animate? What do we do when we give life? Like kids in perpetual motion won’t they just get lost in this vast world. How do you prevent art from leaving the basement?


Yes, we got a dog. The name is Troy. A Doberman with a strong dislike towards small kids and pigs. And a penchant towards art. Long live the dog. Now we safeguard art. Brainpan Studio is now a Troy protected art zone. Feel free to bring your art to the basement.  We offer art protection.
