Here are some of the full-color illustrations Josh McGill created to help bring Ki-Gra and his friends to life. It occurred to me after I created Ki-Gra as a chipmunk that there are already quite a number of animated chipmunks including Disney’s Chip and Dale and Alvin and the Chipmunks. (Duh!) I want Ki-Gra to be unique in actions and looks. I believe his heart, spirit, and actions make him clearly unique among his animated brethren, and I want him to look unique as well. One change that will probably be made is that Ki-Gra’s eyes are likely to become emerald or forest green. I plan to post before-and-after illustrations of Ki-Gra if I change the color of his eyes.
