Description

Experience Level: Expert
Design details: After landing his first feature role as the Office Assistant for Microsoft Word, 'Clippy' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_Assistant) looked like he had hit the big time.

Alas, it was not to be. An unforeseen byproduct of being f** useless at his job. So he was cast out into the wilderness by Billy Gates and his cronies.

Offers dried up over night, friends closed their doors & his girlfriend (Ms. Dewey) cast him out on the street. No money, no prospects, no family, nowhere to go Clippy got involved with the wrong crowd & made some poor choices.

After losing his eye in a bar fight, Clippy reached threshold. He grew a mohawk, got a tat, started pumping iron, bought a motorbike, started a thrash punk band..... and actually got good.... really good.... at being an AI wizard.

So good in fact that he landed a new role with a new startup initiative as their new AI persona. Everyone loves a comeback story.

Your job as an illustrator is to bring this new battle hardened, street tough Clippy to life. Complete with mohawk, eye patch... preferably with tat, beefed up
