I like this because it reminds me of the Victorian print style, especially on the grey background ^^.

Thanks! That's what I was going for.
Hare are some detail pics. I was having trouble getting the negative lines to display properly in the comp. This is closer to what it should look like.


And his ugly mug.

Unfortunately I doubt it will win, but a truly great play on words. I love it.

Not with that attitude, it won't. Positive thinking, old bean!

Probably not on votes but it has a better chance of printing now than ever with the new selection rules.

I think the shirt is gorgeous, by the way.

Thanks so much!

California Condor facts:

Adults stand 3 1/2 fett tal with a 10 foot wingspan!
They prefer to glide, and seek out high perches so they don't have to flap their wings.
They are a prominent part of Native American stories.
They are prone to lead poisoning from bullets due to their extremely strong stomach acid.
In 1987, there were only 22 California Condors left in the world. Thanks to a breeding program at the San Diego Zoo, there are now 400 birds, half of which are in the wild.

This is really nicely done orabbit. If this doesn't work you can do a simpler one using the standard carry on layout with a condor instead of a crown love the play on words

Thanks a lot! In looking, I see that idea's been done, but maybe there's some unmined material left. The title was really an after thought inspired by j5 (thanks!). I just wanted to draw a nice respectable character who has not so respectable habits. Unfortunately, it's not "cute" enough to have mass appeal, but I knew that from the start.

I love the character, if not the unrelated meme reference title. ;P
