Illustration Friday: "Friendship"

My Old Lady Is My Best Friend, Eh?, 2005 • graphite, ink, stolen photo and Photoshop®

People like this still exist in Winnipeg. You don't have to look hard, one of them will appear eventually.
The female of the "banger" species in her 40s is often referred to as a "cougar" and can be found at almost any dive bar. I kinda like 'em.
I was thinking of Heavy Metal Parking Lot when I was doing this. I've only seen clips, but boy, is that s**t hilarious!
I had two prelim sketches for this one. The second had the guy grabbing the girl's breast, but I didn't think that was appropriate for something as family-oriented as this.

I'd like to give props to ImageShack® for hosting my images. Give 'em a go, they're cool.

Looks like a lot of fun! Love the mullet on the guy. That IS a genuine mullet, isn't it?

Yup... I know these folks too. You can find them all over the place here in Nova Scotia.

These are real people! I wouldn't describe them exactly as you did, but here they are...and they have their own TV show. It is a hoot! Eh?

Plenty of these types exist in Sydney Australia too. We call them Westies, or Bogans.
