Rogues Gallery

I did this little watercolor as a concept sketch for some new handmade plush I am working on. Most of the characters and stories I do are pretty nice but these guys are a bit grittier. I am sure I will refine this group but I am really enjoying the mean little egg with the eye patch, I think his name is going to be Jake.

The old surly lemon always kind of scared me, so if he's the good one and this is his evil twin, I don't know if I can handle it.

Just kidding.

The bad egg is cute -- what happened to his eye? Speaking of damage to eggs, I've been reading a biography of Winston Churchill, and when he was Lord Admiral at the time of WWI, he said that you musn't think of a fight between battleships as two men in armor fighting with swords, but as two eggshells fighting with hammers. YIKES!

But I'm sure Joe could take Jake in a fight, because good always defeats evil.
