ENJP 2011!

Woo hoo! Up pretty late (0115 EST). Feeling good, but shouldn't have had coffee after dinner. I make GOOD coffee, so I'm still feeling it.

Anyhoo. I was jazzed up, so I drew, inked and colored a new version of the Evil Nazi Jetpack Penguin! I've been thinking that the first two words are sort of redundant. But, it just rolls of the tongue better (looks like Mr. Eastman was on to something!)

It's almost an improvement meme if you look at the original version from Feb 2007. If I didn't already tell the story, it was done for a "Monster Of The Week" series I did for a co-worker at my last design job. :

Then came this guy from 2008. Now, I think "Ewwwww!":

I think I needed the improvement meme thing. I've been down in the dumps from the lack of design job callbacks. Oh, well, at least I've got some evil penguins

Listening to while posting: "Do What You Want" by OKGO. In my head actually. I watched the video twice today for some reason. OKGO is my guilty pleasure. I'll have to go see Devotchka next week to gain back my indie cred ;)

You updated him and he's awesome and love him and I want one as a pet...hmmm maybe a Nazi penguin would not make the best of pets...still he would have an adorable german, probably still a bad pet.

Great drawing though, your art just gets better and better!

Now, I have the image of a smelly, chain-smoking penguin mooching his way around your apartment, making inappropriate comments during Happy Feet and grumbling that you never buy enough kippers.

Thanks for the compliment. That means a lot coming from you.

Love it!
Reminds me a bit of someone who'd fight alongside 'Dolf' in the Dutch cartoon Alfred J. Kwak
Dolf is the evil crow who is often portrayed with nazi like ideas.

I just found out there's an English spoken version of the tv series. I never knew. I'm youtubing the songs again. Good memories.

I like the surly look. Good stuff.

it also reminds me of the Lippisch p13a

I've built this one from Revell :)

Reminds me of the Crazy Penguin Catapult game - only with an edge. Love the retro-tech flying wing.
