These little fellows came to life during my 3-month internship with a design agency in Vienna. I was instructed to illustrate the zodiac signs in a cute but not children's book-like way, so I decided to go with a bit of a chibi appearance for the characters. Each one of them sports a distinct hat that harmonizes well with their outfits and suggests affiliation with their respective zodiac sign.
They were intended for a little Facebook app that was supposed to swap their heads with a picture of you. Unfortunately, it never saw the day of light, so these cute little things never got a chance to show what's in them. But they don't mind, just look at how happy they are! :)
