Early Cuyler Design

I apologize for not blogging recently. Unfortunately, I had some technical problems with photoshop which prohibited me from both doing more work and resizing things for the web. I have resolved any technical issues, and so finally I am able to post this drawing I did for the show "Squidbillies".

I had been doing very realistic drawings of "Squidbillies" characters in my spare time just for fun--it was a way to continue drawing and designing even when I wasn't feeling particularly inspired.

We were struggling with the concept of creating a caricature of Early on a dune buggy, and Jim Fortier, one of the show's creators and writers, who had seen some of my more realistic renditions, suggested that I try doing one for the show, the idea being that if a caricature is typically a simplified version of reality, then it might make sense for a caricature of a cartoon, which is already simplified, to be the opposite. It can be seen in episode 32, entitled "Tuscaloosa Dumpling".
