Shark Sketch

UPDATE: By Popular demand, this cartoon shark character is now available for purchase and licensing at the following link: Clip Art Shark Vector Graphic

Here's a recent character drawing from the ol' sketch book. It's a concept sketch of a shark character for a client in need of a smiling shark mascot with lots of big sharp teeth. I think I was subconsciously influenced by DreamWorks' "Shark Tale" and Bruce from "Finding Nemo."

There were two versions... this one and another wearing sunglasses and a holding a tropical drink. The other one looked too soft and you couldn't see his eyes, but of course that's the one the client chose.

Fish are friends, not food. Guess where this is from.

Hey this is tracy, I’m 15 and i’ve been working on a clothing line and i really really REALLY want to use this shark as my logo, if its okay with the creators i’d like to use it and I could give you some free clothes or watever man, my label is called ” INSANE! ” and I’m doing clothes for skaters, surfers, and insane people. I hope you let me know soon, i’ve flipped it horizontal and i made its outlines bolder and with neon colors i just need you guys permission cuz its not cool to jack some ones cool picture and call it mine. THANKS HOPE YOU WRITE BACK!
-INSANE!

If you don’t mind, a friend of mine needed a cartoon shark to put in her classroom (she’s a teacher and her class’ team is the sharks) and I found this on a google search and was heavily inspired by it. I’m not getting any money for the job or anything, just thought I’d run it by you since it’s your creation.

I can’t tell you how much I just love this sketch. I am a fashion designer and would be honered if you gave me permission to use this illustration, just perfect for printing purposes, stationary, etc. I admire your work and proffessionalism and would not use this artwork unless I had your ok.
Can’t wait to hear from you. Keep up the good work.

    My son and I came across your drawing of the shark, he just started the boy scouts and their patrol is the sharks. Can we use this image for their flag. It will not be used for profit in any way. It is a small patrol of 6-7 boys.
