I actually won a contest with a local dealership to design their mascot. I created and provided high resolution artwork that is used in their advertisement.
After the contest ended, they needed someone to create a physical costume. I was then commissioned to create Leinado. Everything including his hat and shirt were created from scratch. The mask was built solely out of upolstery foam with a fan inside to cool the wearer. He has been well loved and sized to fit almost everyone. All in all, it was a very fun experience and project. :)
