| illustration Character Design Parker 3 notes
Been reading a bunch of books from the Parker series. They are excellent, no-nonsense crime books about one hard hombre. I had a little difficulty coming up with a design that worked, because he is described in one way, but reads in another. Described in the first book as:

Big and shaggy, with flat square shoulders. His hands, swinging curve-fingered at his sides, looked like they were molded of brown clay by a sculptor who thought big and liked veins. His hair was brown and dry and dead, blowing around his head like a poor toupee about to fly loose. His face was a chipped chunk of concrete, with eyes of flawed onyx. His mouth was a quick stroke, bloodless.

Throughout the books, he seems to get a bit more charming and attractive to women (maybe a bit of the Bond progression, from blank mold to a model man’s man). I went with a more grizzled look, huge hands and an overall brutish appearance. Characters often call him the meanest man they’ve ever met, but he’s just brutally principled and a fun character to read because of it.

Another “Hey, Koo!” haiku comic, worded by Kalia Armbruster, arted by me. This one got a bit intricate, what with all the lazers, although I am getting a lot quicker with the pencil art sketches that are used mostly wholesale for these panels - scanned in and digitally inked. Kalia and I have been working on some backstory stuff for Koo and are going to start doing “artist inserts” every fifth release which should hopefully flesh out the character and the world. More soon!

My buddy does an epic Wrestlemania party each year, so I made some “get out of a shot” cards for the various games where when you lose, you drink. I think it’s the only way to get people pumped about wrestling if they’re not already. I went with a few famous finishers here. I’m new to wrestling but I already know I missed the best guys, namely Hulk and Macho Man.

This is the kick-off of a new series I’m working on called “Hey, Koo!”, penned by Kalia Armbruster and drawn by me. We’ll be putting out a bunch of these haiku comics in pretty much random order and hope to compile them as a collection later on. But for now, enjoy the man with the lazer hands.
