My mate Chris's 40th birthday prompted the above effort which was used as a birthday card. An excellent cartoonist in his own right but with no online artwork as yet. Hopefully he'll get some stuff up soon.
Here's a three-stager showing its progression. It all started with a very rough scribble just to get the desired 'shape'. Didn't bother with a clean drawing as I felt there was enough there to get going on the final line work...I think he liked it, anyway!
