I was supposed to make the apostrophe into a character and have him knocking out the letters to form these three contractions. I decided to make it a karate character so he could use karate moves. Kids like karate. The only thing I’m a little iffy on is making the character white. I made him fully white because a karate gee is all white. I actually tried drawing it in a bit more detail so that the shirt was fully defined, but that just didn’t look right. When I colored the “skin” of the apostrophe, it looked even worse. So, I decided all-white without much detail looked best. The black belt is the important bit, I think.
These are for a textbook project for Hart Mcleod.

So much cuter and more effective than the foldy things we made when I was a teacher! 🙂 I love the black belt.
Hi love these, and so close to awesome…
except the tail of the Apostrophe should be kicking out the “n” (perhaps up) so the remaining words say I CAN DO.
Just a thought. 🙂
Also, isn’t the contraction for I will simply I’ll?? Just wondering.
??? “I’ll” is the contraction for “I will”. So, the apostrophe’s punching the “wi” portion out to leave “I’ll”. Did I miss something? I’m confused.
No, you are NOT confused. I’m the one who looked at it wrong..
Those are so cute. I love the karate guy in white. It just looks “right.”
Way to go! Getting a commission proves your hard and excellent work is beginning to pay off. 😀 Yea!!!
