Creating cannabis characters

As a graphic design artist, I have to make our living from our creativity and our hard work! I have always wanted to be a professional artist, so I am very grateful to do it for money, however I usually draw things I have no interest in.

I don’t get to paint or sketch for most of our jobs, I have to create screen graphics for websites, or logos for company cards, but finally I landed what could be our dream job, because I am supposed to create a series of original drawings to use in ads for a local cannabis dispensary! My concept is an ongoing comic strip, using anthropomorphous cannabis buds as our characters.

I know this would be a funny and entertaining way to promote the cannabis dispensary; These mornings people don’t love ads, they want memes and entertainment, so using cannabis in a cartoon feels love a stroke of brilliance. The main more than one characters are a couple of stoner budtenders named Purple Haze and Blue Dream, who encounter a series of wacky characters at their dispensary. The employer is a big fluffy bud named OG Kush, who is stern along the lines of Squidward from the Spongebob cartoon. Every ad will be a four-panel cartoon set in a cannabis dispensary, evoking the old Thursday funny papers that used to come in the newspaper, The owner of the cannabis dispensary cares about our idea, and I am working on a series of rough drafts for his approval before all of us kick off the ad campaign. I can’t wait for you to study it!
