Business Mouse

A few weeks ago I was listening to the "Bob and Tom" show at breakfast (I listen to the radio while I'm eating my cereal because I don't have cable anymore and there's nothing on over the air TV worth watching in the morning). That day they had a running joke about "Business Mouse."

So that night I was inspired to draw Business Mouse on his way to the office. Looking back, I don't really know what was so hilarious about their joke that compelled me to illustrate it, but there you go.

This is a good example of a problem I used to have when I would draw a thick-necked cartoony character wearing a suit. In the real world, the lapels on a suit jacket morph into a collar that goes all the way around the neck. I used to try and draw cartoon suits that way, and would struggle mightily trying to get it to look right. I never could get it to work. Finally one day I just drew the lapels and said forget about the collar, and it worked. It's a cartoon mouse after all-- his suit doesn't have to look totally realistic for it to work.
