Our motley crew in glorious black-and-white.
A black, easily disgruntled blob. The proto-character. A placeholder for all things comicky.
A generic stick figure. Used when the artist is too lazy to create a new character. Comes in different flavors.
Pretty much everything that can be wrong with a character. Has tuna breath. She is also naked (not that you could tell).
A photo of a bird that was sitting on the artist's deck railing. I think it had just had a sip out of the sop bowl, thus the disgusted look on its beak. Has picked up some obscene traits (probably from Jeph Jacques' Yelling Bird - or possibly the artist after stubbing his toe).
A man drawn in the style of a late 19th century engraving. Cloned a lot since he's a royal pain to draw.
