Just a generic grouchy cartoon boss, and not based on any particular one I've ever had. I drew this shortly after I got my graphic tablet, and I was still trying to figure out how to use it.
My favorite thing about illustrating in Photoshop (or Illustrator) is that I can quickly and easily try out tons of color combinations until I find the one that's right. Sometimes I find a color combo that I never would have thought of in a million years. The computer helps me push myself farther than I would if I was working on paper with paints or colored pencil.
