Illustration Friday: Stripes

I picked up an illo I did for a doodle book for Buster Books but layered in a watercolor wash just for fun. I think this guy was my favorite out of the book series, and I’m thinking the hidden inspiration was all that Beechnut Fruit Stripe gum I gnawed on as a kid.

If you are old enough to remember this stuff (before it was super-sized and repackaged), check out the old commercials on youtube–every line of the jingle magically comes back to you.
