This little guy was inspired by some recent podcasts over at Art & Story Supreme. Kevin Cross and Mark Rudolph have been discussing their love for the "cartoon modern" style of 1950's animation and design. It is a style that uses simple shapes and as few lines as possible. It is much harder to pull off than it sounds! It is easy to "hide" a bad drawing in lots of lines and shading. There is no place to hide in the cartoon modern style.
