Show me the Munny.

Despite having to work over 30 hours in the last two days, I made the effort to just get this Munny finished. It looks pretty much just like I had hoped, and very much like my original drawing. Maybe the real deal is a little cuter.

He's one cool dude, for sure, but I am most excited about the illustration I am going to do with him, which will be done with the same combination of drawing and photography as my L'etoile Magazine Series.

It should be an effin' ball. But first I have to get him photographed professionally.

So without further ado, I present my complete Munny!* (I wish I would have thought up a sweet name for him, to make this unveiling all the more dramatic... Let's just call him Munnnykins for now.)

I present to you.....MUNNYKINS!


Munny subject to change if I say so. So there, all you Fat Cats in Washington.

UPDATE : Fat Cats in Washington, you got the best of me.... as I was dropping my Little Munnykin off to get photographed, I accidentally touched him barehanded and pulled my finger across his forehead. Munnykin is drawn in a hyper-soft media, and it resulted in smearing his hair into a big blurry fingerprint. And it's impossible to remove or cover; every mark is permanent. So after a little verbal-venting and resisting the urge to bludgeon myself to death with his cute little vinyl self, I am trying to make it fit in and make everything better. Curses.

I would let that munny sit in my lap, assuming it promised not to piddle on me.
