This could double as a self-portrait for me when I've been working too much. I think I might take this design and flesh it out a bit more later on down the road.
This is actually a bit older & unfinished (even by my standards!) but when some friends were looking through my sketchbook they seemed to enjoy it. They said it looked like a weird cross-section of a dude's face. It's something I may explore later as well...
On my flight to the Twin Cities there was a woman who didn't sit down for 90% of the trip. She kept doing leg exercises and pacing up and down the aisle and it was pretty awkward. She reminded me of an older strung-out hippy with an eating disorder and I can only assume that she owned three cats minimum. When the pilot would come on over the loudspeaker she'd stop and strike the pose above.
Here I tried to illustrate a friend's facial expression... I think it's a little too stiff though, I gotta work on that!
I thought I'd revisit the naked-man-animal theme I got into towards the tail-end of college. I think a hamster is a good way to go but I don't think he's exaggerated enough. I'll do additional drawings down the road and maybe get something colored soon.
