LeadRocket has been a pretty awesome experiment. Originally it was conceived to give myself the daily exercise of doing a sketch a day. I spent so much time behind a computer doing graphic design work, I forgot the feeling of a pencil to sketch pad. But what surprised me was how quickly I stopped drawing what I thought people wanted to see, and started drawing what I loved. I went back to my roots, which was cartoons. I grew up watching Looney Tunes, Popeye, Felix the Cat, Casper, Mighty Mouse, the old Fleischer Superman...you name it, it influenced me.
I've created more solid characters and the stories behind them in two years, than I have in my whole life. Pretty awesome. So here again is Pandamonium. Nemesis of Sushi and Gazpacho. A real bastard too. Officially, the loud-mouth bastard of a panda from New England.
