Character Design Exercises

I'm doing my exercises.  My brain exercises.

I, along with several illustrator pals are taking the fantabulous Kelly Light's advise and doing our character design exercises.  (Kelly held a workshop at the most recent NESCBWI Conference and amazed all with her superhero illustrator powers (although everyone who knows her, knew she'd be amazing - wish I could have been there)!

So what are these exercises, you ask, and how can you play too?
It's simple.  It's fun.   Just make a grid and draw a random shape in each box.  Then you let your imagination take charge and see where it leads you!

For me,  this was a great way to relax at the end of a very busy drawing day.
