Well, it's been awhile since I posted some art, but I'm back. I apologize to my legions of fans who have been holding their breath (heh), but I've been busy with things. Anyway, this is a pixel of The two main characters from the comic book Tug and Buster, by Marc Hempel. If you haven't heard of it, do yourself a favor and buy it right now. Not only is it one of the most original and insightful examples of the medium I have ever read, but it's clever, witty, and f**king hysterical.

12 colors including transparency.

Yeah, I tried to stay faithful to Hempel's style. Tug and Buster is a satire of hero worship and the "American Male Ideal". It follows the adventures of Tug, the strong, silent epitome of manliness, and Buster, a kid who has dedicated his life to the glorification and emulation of tug, his hero. They get into quirky situations with hilarious results. There is more information on the series here: http://www.insightstudiosgroup.com/properties/propertyPage_tugBuster.htm
