Vancouver 2010 Mascots Unveiled

WOW!! I don't know what else to say... these are fantastic!! I love the style. Kudos to the Vancouver Olympics organizing committee for putting for such great effort into these characters. This makes me even that much more excited about trying to attend the games.
The characters are:
  • Miga -- a snowboarding sea-bear inspired by the First Nations' legends of the Pacific Northwest. Miga, described as mischievous and outgoing, is part sea-bear and part orca whale.
  • Quatchi -- a shy and gentle Sasquatch with a long brown beard and blue earmuffs meant to conjure the mystery and wonder associated with the Canada's wilderness.
  • Sumi -- an animal guardian spirit, who flies with the wings of the thunderbird, is described as "a natural born leader with a passion for protecting the environment."
Thanks to James, a friend of mine working in Vancouver, for the heads up!
