A Dumpling Man, I Guess by JohnSu A Dumpling Man, I Guess by JohnSu
I couldn't complete my current picture before February ran out in my time zone, so I'm uploading this 30-minute sketch to scraps instead.


This is an idea that I immediately adapted into a 0-page book titled "What the Hell is That?" starring detective John Beerfist. If you open it, there is cardboard inside.

I like your choice of colors. It's very simple, them shades of bubblegum pink and black. It reminds me of colored book covers and illustrations from the 70's or 60's...or maybe 50's. Yay, nostalgia!

As for the success of your children's book...the mysterious Dumpling Man gives me nightmares. D:

Thanks, that was the effect I was hoping for! That, and sun-bleached colors.

Dumpling Man is actually loosely inspired by one of your clown-characters or something from long ago. My memory on that is fuzzy, but I just remember the impression it left me on the viability of clown pajamas.

You could sell this as a piece of cardboard and people would still buy it.
