Wendy by kevinbolk Wendy by kevinbolk
Continuing my "Lovely Lady Mascots" art card set, here's Wendy of Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers

Wendy is based on Wendy's founder Dave Thomas's fourth daughter, Melinda Lou Thomas (as a young child she pronounced her name "Wenda" which later became her nickname "Wendy"). As much as I hate to impugn the looks of a then 8-year old girl, she really didn't look much like the character on the sign. Then again, I don't look much like my adorable cartoon alter-ego, so who am I to judge? 9.9

If you're curious, here's what she looks like today (on the left): [link] (and if that don't work, try this one [link] )

Next up! The St. Pauli Girl (Beer + Hot German Blonde = WIN!)

My parents and I used to get all our burgers from Wendy's(my favorite was their "triple cheese plain")...until our visit to a location in Banning, California. There the burgers tasted like cardboard. We switched franchises(I won't tell you which one), but I still miss their food (especially their "frosties") and their infamous "Where's the beef?" commercials. Ah, memories.

Aww, such an adorable rendition! I never thought anything associated with fast food could be this cute! Though I'm sure that big ol' skirt of hers helps. Very cute.

actually, this isn't Wendy.
The founder of Wendy's* had two daughters. Wendy, and the one everyone THINKS is Wendy. The red-head (fake Wendy) would draw more attention then real Wendy (a brunette)

The old lady that said "Where's the Beef?" Was Clara. I remember that in the early 1980's, Clara and her eldery friends would be in the commercials, where she would examine her burger and it would be really small compared to the bun. Wendy's burger patties are much larger because of Clara and her"Where's the Beef?" ad.

Every year, one lucky girl is chosen at Wendy's to dress as the Wendy's mascot. She presides over all functions pertaining to Wendy's International, Inc.

I just had one of their baconators today. Delicious!

In my country there's no Wendy's, there are only Carls' Juniors, Mc. Donalds, and Burger Kings...
This drawing makes me wonder how Wendy's cheeseburgers taste like. She is adorable! Can you please do more of this Mascot art cards?
I wish I could draw like you, really.

You people sure had a lot of mascots. ^^ Again, I have no previous knowledge about this one, but the colour setting in the background and her dress really makes her leap off of it. :3

If Wendy's had a new campaign aimed at kids, this should do the trick, and it would totally sell it. > u<

Every time somebody mentions Wendy's, I think back to my grandmother, who while in her 90's( about 15 years ago) was taken to Wendy's for the first time, and became offended because the burgers were not round! We tried to explain "they just make them square here Nana", but she wouldn't have it!
"SQUARE LIKE THEIR HEADS!" she yelled. She was pissed!
