Side Order of Fry Guy

For the second installment of colorful creatures from my childhood we have one of McDonald's Fry Guys. Thanks for the suggestion Lannice! I had pretty much forgotten about these dudes, but if you take the McDonald's association away from them they're actually pretty cool little characters. Amorphous googley eyed, glasses wearing pom pom creatures sporting socks and high tops? YES! I'd like to see a movie/tv show/comic strip about a whole society of these guys. And what do they have to do with french fries? Yeah I get it that their hair (fur?) resembles shoestring cut fries, but come on, that's a stretch. And even if that is all there is, that is totally weird. 

I probably won't do any more affiliated mascots after this one, but I'm still taking suggestions for other creatures to draw. My default is to just draw monsters that appeared in the background of Jabba's Palace so if you don't want to see that then let's hear those suggestions!

E.T.(ree's Lounge)

"I haven't phoned home in years. Don't think I have one to go back to."

Remember that ultra depressing Steve Buscemi movie from the 90s (Tree's Lounge) where he plays an alcoholic? As I sat down to draw E.T. last night, like I sometimes do, I realized that he started resembling a down on his luck Steve Buscemi, so I gave him a cigarette a blue background to complete the scene. 

It sure was a nice break to draw something quick and fun since the majority of the work I've been doing the past few months has been so precise and line based. Hoping to do more like this in the future of some of my other favorite creatures. Any suggestions?

"Eye'll have what he's having"

I've been interested in body parts and facial features lately and I'm still figuring out the best way to explore this interest.

 In the meantime here's a drawing of my brother eating a rather glaring portion of  eyeball cake.
