Illustration Friday: "Year of the Rooster"

El Pollo Loco or The Ladies Love The Cock, 2005 • Graphite and Pentel Brush Pen

I just had to do this, even though there are more pressing issues at hand. Several influences on this one:
  • Joel Trussel's Cartoon Cockfight
  • House of Buggin'
  • Ong-Bak
  • the recent stories about cockfighting in Louisiana
  • My ever-increasing 312 pound frame (yup, it's self-caricature)
  • Foghorn Leghorn (of course)
Now I can truly concentrate on other stuff. Happy Chinese New Year, y'all!

P.S.: On an unrelated note, do yourself a favor and pick up Jaime Hernandez's Locas: A Love And Rockets Book. I'm in love with it, totally.

Just great--I love his expression! I guess he's certainly ready to knock the socks off 2005!

Great expression...I think that's one cock I am definitely afraid of...

Thanks, folks. This one's been the most fun so far.

There's something more pressing then Illo Friday? Love your rooster.

Allan L. said...

Yeah, unfortunately there is. Tons of schoolwork. Having the 'net in front of me everyday is a REALLY bad thing.
Thanks!
