“Benjamin felt a nose nuzzling at his shoulder. He looked round. It was Clover. Her old eyes looked dimmer than ever. Without saying anything she tugged gently at his mane and led him round to the end of the big barn, where the Seven Commandments were written. For a minute or two they stood gazing at the tarred wall with its white lettering.

‘My sight is failing,’ she said finally. 'Even when I was young I could not have read what was written there. But it appears to me that that wall looks different. Are the Seven Commandments the same as they used to be, Benjamin?’

For once Benjamin consented to break his rule, and he read out to her what was written on the wall. There was nothing there now except a single Commandment. It ran: ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.”

-George Orwell, Animal Farm

2017 Character Portfolio! Part 1

I designed what I thought the characters from the Dr. Dolittle story would look like. Im still updating on this daily.

Dr. Dolittle is a doctor turned vet by accident. His pet parrot teaches him how to communicate with animals and from there he learns of mistreatment of animals going on in an African village. Him and his animal companions travel to the African village of Jolly Jinky to solve this dilemma and to rescue not only the animals of the area but also the people.
He is passionate about helping those around him, a bit of a goofball, but leads with his heart which can get him into danger quick. Believes there is good in everyone.


Polynesia is Dr. Dolittle’s main sidekick, she teaches him how to speak animalese, the language used to communicate with animals. She is mature, bossy, and is a planner for their adventures in Africa. She thinks with her head and has to get Dr. Dolittle and Che Che the monkey sidekick, out of danger by coming up with plans.
