Faux Bo

Here’s something weird…

The series of daily strips that have been running on Gocomics.com this week (with a couple more days to go) is about Bo getting a job wearing a monkey costume to promote a store’s grand opening. (Subtle irony, eh?) So when thinking about how to draw a costume or toy of a real animal the first thing you’d do is simplify and abstract it. Y’know, like a teddy bear doesn’t have the same features as a real bear. Of course, cartooning is all about simplifying and abstracting. And when your style is as bare bones as mine, it can be a challenge to make the monkey costume not look like the monkey Bo. You can see them both in this strip and see if I was successful.
