The Urflings are characters I developed as an idea for stock-art, or as a style for the educational market, which I do a fair bit of work for. The idea was to boil my style down to the simplest thing possible, and I became a bit addicted to making them.

I designed the Urflings to be simple, funny, positive, entertaining, friendly, versatile, silly, original, classical, iconic, international, and broadly educational. They are about our diversity as human beings, and also our unity. I intend them to be a force for good in the world.

My first commercial commission for one of these was from my friend Brian, who asked me to make this guy for a student project he was working on called eGator, an online shopping portal for SF State University:
