Motor Scooters and Fat Guys Process

This isn't quite done yet, but I've been drawing stupid stuff like this since I was a kid and, as much of a cliche as it is, I still find the idea of a big, mean lookin' dude driving a motor scooter or other tiny vehicle hilarious.

I've been reading Chuck Jones' second autobiography, "Chuck Reducks", and, needless to say, it's been incredibly influential on my work. I grew up watching Chuck Jones (Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, etc.) cartoons and, amongst other things, these old cartoons are what truly got me into drawing and painting. After several years of pushing away my cartoony sensibilities and focusing on other aspects of art and design, I've finally accepted cartoons and goofy stuff as what I truly love to draw and create and I think my work shows that.
Anyways, I'll be throwin' the finish of this bad lad up here in the coming days and I think I'm going to do two more of these to make it a series (different characters of course). Hope you're diggin' the direction and thanks for stopping in!
