Bloodsuckin' Bastard's S**t Eatin' Grin, 2006 • graphite, Crayola crayon, Copic marker, Staedtler pigment liner, Higgins ink and Photoshop.

I was inspired by Jeope's take to get going on this one. This IF actually started on the back of a business card while bored at a wedding social this past Saturday. Mosquitos and a Winnipeg summer are synonymous, f'real. What makes me laugh is that I now live in the very heart of Wolseley, the granola-eatin', patchouli-scented part of town* that protests the spraying of Malathion against mosquitos every year. Well...whatery'gonnado?
Large version? Here!

*Jokes, y'all. This neighbourhood rules.

EDIT: Here's a much bloodier version. I feel much better about this one.

Why are you looking at me like that Mr. Mosquito? Oh.. no, STOP! *gurgle* Such an evil grin, good stuff Al.

Nice drawing and colors. It has a bit of the Dr. Seus look to it.

Thanks, guys...I just posted a bloodier version.

The bloodier version is definitely best. Splatter doesn't get better than that. Super evil expression!

Aresome. I like that I see The Grinch in him (technically 'her'). I loathe these things - even in Wolseley. I must give off some sort of mosquito musk or sumthin'.

Nothing like a good old fashioned mosquito to get me in the summer mood, ummmm, drip, drip, soooo red, ummmmm.
