Bev has been writing a gardening column for years– she uses characters to explain gardening various concepts. ("Bunkey can't ward off the deer from his garden" "George shows Bunkey when to repot his plants")
Upon deciding to publish a book of the columns, she wanted her characters brought to life, based on her descriptions. I designed the characters based on descriptions from her columns (look and personality).
Bunkey is out main protagonist, he is mid 30's, a city boy who is new to gardening, and has a perpetually bewildered look on his face.
George is a warm Santa-like type. Been gardening for years in well-worn clothes and pants with baggy knees.
Petunia is prissy, hates messes. She wears her hair in a nice up-do and always has kitten heels.
