that faint burn
of pleasant Green swirls into
She is chilled by
a blood-tangled emptiness
That pulls her
into lost weeks
where she is
a crumpled lump
in her own foul water

In life, the external form does not indicate the internal form. Appearances are almost always deceptive. But in art, appearance is all that exists. The internal and the external are one in the same. These characters are deformed by most standards, but they still have an uplifting quality. Their quirky little faces with lopsided eyeballs and large swirly noses are sweet, genuine reflections of what people really are: a complex marriage of flaws and strengths that reflects a familiar sort of beauty.
The pink paper above contains my own doodles, many based on designs of his, others exact imitations.

The first one is a quick sketch of Captain Marvel, the current female comic book. The other one is really old and I barely remember it… Pretty much just my love of old styles and steampunk.

“Violet and her Dog” by Angie Hoover-Hillhouse
When I worked as an Executive Assistant a few years back, I had days where I worked until my brain turned into farts followed by days where I could draw in my office for hours without getting caught. One afternoon I drew about 40 different alien/monster/creature-things and left them on desktops and toilets. This one was pulled from that bunch.
THE BALLAD OF SMEE
There once was an Ogre named Smee
Who had a blue mustache that grew on his knee
He washed it
and combed it
and shined it with wax
Til he smashed it in band with his new tenor sax
