One of Japan’s many knick-knack stores has taken a shine to a character I doodled many years ago. They’ve asked that I prepare enough material to exhibit in their HP Deco store in Tokyo, from there it will “tour” the country. In addition to the films/paintings/rubber stamp whatzits that I’ve made to fill a small booth, they want me to submit a design for a coffee mug. Since I’m a fan of the drink, I have no problem doing so. My first reaction was to draw the character smashing coffee mugs into a pile of rubble.
Here’s Phineas Gage, the delightful malcontent. If you don’t know that name already, look it up.
