What inspired this guy was a hat I saw in downtown LA at the fabric district. They were selling snapbacks but instead of a stitched design on the front, they had these panels that looked bolted onto the hat. I'm sure you've seen them around. They got popular. Anyway, so I got this idea that he would be a cigar smoking mafia thug with a tommy gun. I'm not sure how I settled on him being in a yellow-orange but maybe I only had those colors with me when I colored it in. The sad part though is that this is one of the drawings that got stolen, so I never did a high-res scan. This is just a photo taken, which is why you can see a bit of distortion of you look closely.
Too bad that it never gets that cold in southern California. It would be fun to wear this kind of jacket with a big ass collar. But I'll probably never smoke a cigar like this guy.Back to All Characters
