Let's kick 2010 off to a crazy start!

(the ink)

This action movie poster-type image of Scribble and Skarfy in a runaway car came to me one night and I couldn't stop laughing. I had to draw it.

Here's a new character I'm making based off a girl I met at a club a couple weeks ago, named Jen. She looked exactly like this, at least as close as I can remember.
Scribble and Skarfy look up to her as the ultimate vision of "cool". They are Jen's biggest fans and hope to be just as cool as her by the time they turn 24. Jen is pretty busy with her ultra-social life and her many other mid-20s hipster/angry punk youth friends, but she lets Scribble and Skarfy hang around her sometimes. She lets them come to her whenever they need guidance because she thinks their naivety and idolization of her is cute. So she's sort of their wise mother figure, their oracle, in a way (even if her advice usually just gets the girls into more trouble).

That's a super quick drawing of Jen, I'm still toying with her design and I don't really know if I like it just yet. I'll continue to tinker though. tinker tinker tinker.

Here's a bad drawing of Lady Gaga!

Hmmm. Wallpaper, anyone? :)

I love these drawings and the new Jen character. I want her to be my social life guide too.

Aw, I'm so glad you're doing more with this idea, Nico! The Jen design is interesting, I hope you post more of her as you develop the character!
