The idea for this came from a Tweet that I had made after hearing multiple people use the shortened colloquial form of “totally.”
A few years ago I was able to create some illustrations for a website called GrumbleRumble.com. I was tasked with creating a mascot they could use to represent different aspects of their end users conflicts that needed resolution. The client provided me with free reign to generate ideas that were fun and cartoony to fill his need. He tended to lean towards athletic poses, so I developed the concept in that direction.
