Went to an "art walk" about a week ago, but there wasn't really anything worth mentioning (mostly identical pop art that felt several generations removed).
But there were two things: CHICANO BATMAN
, and some wooden boards that everyone could draw/paint on. I pretty much drew a copy of this.
So now that we're done uploading Toon Patrol studies, I'm pleased to introduce one of our original characters, Benny the Beaver!
He's pretty much your everyman toon, a Mickey Mouse/Porky Pig/Andy Panda type who is nevertheless a hero, happy-go-lucky and musically talented. He also has a girlfriend named Barbera, who's generally chipper, but can be quite a spitfire when riled.
All in all, not too original on paper, but I think my approach to the archetype is distinct and appealing.
Maybe sometime I can upload the story of his animation studio.
(will move to scraps when I finish the final version)
