“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

DR. GIRLFRIEND & HER MURDEROUS MOPPETS_commission
Actually, did she only have the little dwarfs when she was Lady Au Pair? I can't recall exactly and I read some place that the two eventually started dressing up in the standard henchmen outfits? That's so strange to me. But considering that I haven't watched a VENTURE BROS. episode in quite some time, things may have changed considerably.
That said, I think next to Brock Sampson, Dr. Girlfriend (aka: Dr. Mrs. The Monarch) is my most favorite character from the series. Why, you ask? The Harvey Fierstien-like voice, of course! It's such a great show and such an awesome premise. I can't wait until I have some free time so I can get caught up with the new episodes. Hmm... come to think of it, is the show even still on the air?
Anyway, this is a commission for a friend who was kind enough to wait for it since forever. I figured I'd try to give him something good to look at. Plus, if you consider the pedigree of the other artists in this book already, I thought I'd better step up my game so that I don't come off as the weak link. Thus the Copics and marker rendering. I hope I did okay by you, Jim.
Welcome back from the extended weekend, everyone. Did you guys gorge yourselves on BBQ'ed meats and other foods that aren't heart conscious? I hope so.
