Bruno, the Rotten Egg

I did this character for Erika Medina's art project "Many Brunos".

Erika is still looking for submissions.

You can get more info here:


I was send this description:




Bruno could pass for a human but also as an animal.


Bruno is grotesque yet adorable. When you see him it may cause some nausea and also some laughter.


Bruno has more agile legs than a velociraptor and a gazelle together, but you cannot always notice it.


Sometimes, Bruno is very asymmetric, and may even have 3 pupils but only 2 eyes.


His expression is of fatigue and anxiety, and happiness and hunger.


Bruno has a lot of hair, but sometimes you can only see very little of it.


Sometimes, Bruno must spend time in the mud, or he would lose all his teeth.


Bruno enjoys spending most of his time in crowded places, but most people never see him.


Bruno sometimes wears clothes, but not how they are supposed to be worn. (ankle boots with mini heels are among his favorites).


Bruno could pose as your weirdest family member or acquaintance and you would never realize it.


Most dogs go crazy after seeing Bruno. Cats don't care about him, so they don't react at all.


The life expectancy of Bruno is unknown so far.


After seeing Bruno, anyone gets confused ... for at least a few days. (some think he is really ugly and creepy)
