I whipped this up this morning for my portfolio to be sent to Pixar. That makes me sound like a braggart. Actually this marmoset (or monkey) was created a year ago for a book I was working on about a naturalist who crashes on this Alice in Wonderland type island and documents what he finds. I guess that would make this guy Mr. Caterpillar. I wasn't happy with that design so I took some elements and completely redesigned him. This version drinks the other one's milkshake.

So here's the story with this kid. He thinks he is Napoleon Bonaparte or something resembling him. I'm sure his parents have "encouraged" him to the point where conquest of Europe seems within his chubby grasp. I also thought it would be funny that the figurehead of the Napoleonic Wars (demonstration of Europe's naval power) would be wearing water wings. And a beach towel. Anyway, I might do a few versions of the neutral pose in color and maybe an illustration involving him and a so far unnamed adversary.
