Who can explain the artist's method? I can't. I've been shamefully slacking on Business Casual Stag Devil Death Boy as of late, so I've been trying to do some drawing to gear back up and then spend some time on it over the next couple weeks while housesitting for friends. Since my primary responsibility seems to be to take care of the cat, I didn't think it would be a good idea to bring over my messy, toxic paints. Anyways, I sat down tonight with the intention of working on my cartooning of Carl Caperton but an AMC double header of Jurassic Park and Lake Placid later, I found myself with this picture of a dissatisfied looking character's torso in a Chess King sweater type thing (not a poncho) on a stool. It's like a mock-up of something that might come out of a John Hughes / John Waters brainstorming session. I don't know. Can't explain it. But it cracked me up so I thought I'd pass it on.
(WARNING - LAKE PLACID SPOILER - I thought Lake Placid was going to be your standard, run-of-the-mill there's-a-30-foot-alligator-in-our-peaceful-new-england-town's-lake movie, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a plot twist that included Betty White secretly feeding cows (and her husband) to the giant gator. Now that is cinema.)
