Google Doodle? Meet The Littlest Hobo.

If you’re a child of the ’80s, you may recall The Littlest Hobo, a charming Canadian television series airing on CTV starring, well, a dog. It’s a cult favourite and, as I don’t see it becoming the star of a Google Doodle anytime soon, I took it upon myself to make it happen. The star-dog appears in a picture frame to emulate nostalgia.

My past Google Doodles (and drawings in general) are heavy on line details, so with this exercise I erred on the side of simplicity with lines and with colour. To create it, I sourced images from the television show, studied the lettering from the opening credits, and threw in some paw prints for good measure. Programs and tools used: iPencil, iPad, Adobe Sketch, Adobe Draw, and Photoshop.

For illustration students, I recommend creating a delicious mashup of Google Doodles and your most beloved television heroes. Or anything really.

This concludes my journey into Google Doodles. See other experiments from this year below!
