First a few words on the Character of Tonni the Man. Every year for the past 30 years, the danish Muscular Dystrophy Fund have sponsored the Green Koncert, touring all the major cities in Denmark. As part of their Muscular Dystrophy awareness strategy, the danish Muscular Dystrophy Fund have created a comical character Tonni the Man as a conférencier and "mascot" for Green Koncert. The ironic character is a bit shallow, very cool and has a sort of hip hop "I don't give a damn" atitude.
The real man behind Tonni is one of my friends, Simon, who asked me to draw a vector portrait of Tonni. The portrait, being very detailed, was a bit of a challenge and nearly killed my mac in the process. It turned out to be much more detailed than intended but the result is this very large vector-portrait that I think turned out quite allright.
Later Simon asked me to do a smaller drawing to the danish music magasin Gaffa. It was printed in a Green Koncert special edition and later on a t-shirt as merchandise.
