Working on a children's book with characters that will also be featured in an online comic strip. This is some early coloring I did to get ideas for how the characters looked when together on the same page. I think this expression sums up the hamster's personality pretty well.

I found an old oversized art book by Jack Hamm that I bought at a flea market a few years ago, so I worked on some warm-up sketches from it. The character featured here is not the kind of person I would want to enter a business deal with, but he looks like he could direct an interesting circus sideshow exhibit or medicine-man show. Shady, but big and boisterous. Had fun inking this in a moleskin notebook, and Inkscape for the final version.
