I’d love to tell you that I intentionally tried to illustrate this in a half-assed fashion.
The truth is, after inspiration struck (in the form of a still photo of a grown man who was beaten to a pulp, but with the caption “I won!”, I thought to myself, “…did you now?”
I then proceeded to scratch this out in pencil in 15 seconds with my trusty Palomino Blackwing 602, and only when I got to the “hotshot” at the end did I half-try to draw a somewhat competent cartoon, as though I had intended the whole thing to look like it does. Nope! Ha ha!
How’s that for honesty?
