Japanese for “too cute”

I was tangentially familiar with the “Pop” figurines, but last summer I started drawing some tiny characters for a story idea and I quickly discovered there was an entire world of (Japanese) cartooning called “Chibi.” My original figures had ranged from “4-heads-high” down to babies of about 1.5 heads high! For now I’m going to stick with the traditional 2-2.5 for adults.

The man illustrated here is Bob Wells, a popular and respected nomadic van-dweller with an informative YouTube channel and website.

(I’ve done a few of Trump which are still un-inked. I’ll post them when I get that done.)
