The Evolution of Bob – 2002 to 2019

Character design is… hard.

I do not profess to be even somewhat competent on character design.  I do enough get in trouble.

There’s not much out there to look forward to in January.  At least for me.  And this January has sucked beyond suck. But I DO look forward to seeing how my character has evolved. I think maybe I’ve hit an evolutionary plateau with Bob.  He’s about as Bob as he’s gong to get.  Maybe I’ve approached a point of (dare I say it) perfection?  At least with him visually.

Of course in 2020 I’ll probably say the same thing.

the sight of sound…

I like playing with lettering.  One of my favorite things to do in the strip is come up with new ways of visualizing sound. SO for the beginning of 2019, I thought i’d abandon the solid color background Bob memes and mess around with this.

Simply scroll to the panel you want on If there’s a “OWN THIS SQUIRREL” button underneath the panel, it’s available for purchase. If not, then… I think you get the idea.

Also check THE ARCHIVE page… for a rundown of past panels.

SALE IS GOOD THRU THE END OF 2018. Now is the time to acquire that squirrel art you’ve been admiring!

If you don’t want to scroll back through YEARS of panels, email me and I’ll do it for you. Every original art purchase goes toward my squirrel drawing habit. 🙂
