Laugh-Out Loud Cats artist creates New York park mascot
The New York Times' City Room notes the choice of the New York City Parks and Recreation's official mascot – Pearl the Squirrel. [strawdog/furryne.ws]
According to Disney Interactive artist Adam Koford, Pearl beat several feathered competitors:
We almost went with an owl, or one of the hawks that live alongside Central Park, but the squirrel was a bit funner to draw.
Furry fans might know Adam as the creator of the Laugh-Out Loud Cats (archive), a pair of anthropomorphic feline hobos drawn in early 20th-century style who use 21st-century Internet slang. He also illustrated the HTTP 4xx status errors (available in poster form).
Update: Pearl in fursuit form.
