The series of toys for Creationist Cat offered some unique problems. The initial set of three toys featured a very detailed style, with a focus on making sure the cat’s fur properly curves around the face and tail. This detailed style would be something I’d later regret a little, as the decision to design four more cat toys.
The original CC toy is the “naked” cat holding a copy of the bible, the client gave a lot of input to how the cat’s face should look, changing the mouth and eyes multiple times to give the perfect, cheeky expression. Later holiday themed versions of the model featured the cat in different outfits and costumes.
This model went through a lot of different changes as mentioned in the “about project” section. The original version of this model’s hope was a proof of concept for a publisher, after creating the Robot Rumble book the publisher wanted a book aimed at young girls with cute animals inside.
The book ended up not going ahead and so the concept lay dormant until the CC project went forward. As this is the “default” version of the Creationist Cat toy there aren’t many hidden secrets or interesting design elements to speak of, other than the addition of the collar to the character to help separate the head of body.
Client : Creationist Cat
Creationist Cat is a satirical Youtube channel about a cat who was “zapped” by God through the internet, granting him super intelligence and telekinetic powers, which he used to spread the word of Christ. The character of Creationist Cat often finds himself in online debates with online sceptics, who despite seeing a talking, super intelligent cat, demand more proof of the lords power.
I was commissioned to create a set of downloadable models as rewards for the channels online patrons. After the initial set of three toys were finished, more were designed to co-inside with various holidays.
