The Story
My internet friend Simon is one of those clever code people.

He makes web apps and software that solve problems for people like me and you. I'm glad there are guys like him out there, they do the kind of stuff that my brain simply won't allow me to.

Anyway, he approached me the other week because he needed some help putting together an identity for a brand new piece of software he had created - It's really cool too!

Basically, it's a piece of javascript (yeah, I pretended to know what that meant too). It helps developers and testers to communicate bugs in a super-efficient way, so that the developer knows EXACTLY what the user saw and can then set-about fixing it, quickly and easily (hopefully).

It's called BrowserSpy because it sits in the background, recording everything the user does and sees whilst on a website... When a bug happens, the tester simply sends the recording of the problem they faced over to the developer... Genius!

The Idea
I started by drawing a pair of 'sneaky' eyes and I noticed that they looked a little bit like a letter B on its side. (Rotate your head 90 degrees to the right, you should see it).

I then thought it would be cool to turn this into a little spy-type character by giving him a cool little hat... It's like a mixture of Columbo and a Private Eye from an old film noir flick.

Oh, just one more thing...

Simon is currently looking for Alpha testers to help him iron out any little bugs and make sure it runs like clockwork. If you think you can be of assistance, head over to and send him a note.
