Concept Art: Hello Kitty Car Toys by marywinkler Concept Art: Hello Kitty Car Toys by marywinkler
Sanrio concept work never used. circa 2011. done for a company that was licensing Sanrio characters. they deemed my concepts “too edgy” for kids.

This has happened a lot. I’ve sinced toned down my “Acrylicana®” influence on hired concept work unless asked for expressly (to be fair, my liaison really dug my stuff and we and the team really wanted it to fly w/ the suits that were licensing Sanrio).

Me neither. I found more from another time  I tried stuff for Sanrio (or a company licensing Sanrio). Will post them soon.

:D Thanks. I should just use them in some other way. Make a cute animal design and go mental.

Their loss. These designs would have even turned a hard-core Kitty-phobe like me into a fanatic.

They did. It wasn't Sanrio themselves, though -- It was another company licensing Sanrio, so I think they wanted tame HK circa '76.
Definitely didn't understand either. Still don't. x.x
