My character, called Bunny, is a sweet old lady. She is a housewife, and enjoys the responsibility of cooking and cleaning, maintaining the welfare of her family, and staying safely and securely at home. It is a dangerous world out there, and life experience has taught her that more people want to hurt her than to help her. She is very protective of her many children, and feels reluctant to let them explore the world for themselves. However, they have all grown and left the house now and she finds herself left in a much emptier house, worrying all day long.

Assignment 1: Style Exploration

Salty Starfish is a beach bum whose only love in life is the ocean. He dropped out of high school several years ago to pursue a career as a professional surfer, but soon found that the intense competition conflicted with his care free nature and lazy disposition. Now he camps out on the beach, and rises with the sun each morning to catch the surf all day long. He lives sparsely, surviving on coconuts and the money he makes selling seashells to tourists in a souvenir shop.
