    Manga Josh!

    This comes courtesy of my friend and collaborator Doug Hills, because I needed a drawn profile pic for something.  He says he doesn't think it looks like manga much at all.  It might be true, because I don't see a single speed line.  I might just be manga illiterate. 

    Either way, I dig it.  My wife says it looks like a sleazy version of me.

    A very good likeness. Great work, Doug!

    If it's mangaesque, where's the tentacle-rape?

    Why do you think I'm smirking?

    I feel like this Josh isn't wearing pants.

    Why do you think I'm smirking?

    I can see Josh in there, but it's like he's trapped inside the Seth Green version of Parallax. Creepy, but kind of awesome.

    Why so blond?

    I think your wife might be right. It's the smirk.

    The smirk and the eyebrow

    "Why so blond?"

    Because I had his hair darker initially, and he told me: "make me blonder! BLONDER!!"

    Or something to that effect.

    Funny thing is I was struggling w/ the Seth Green thing too. I think I gave him too much hair.

    I have blond hair!

    August 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJosh

    I have to side with Doug on this one. You're more of a sandy/dark blonde.

    Yes, that's what it looks like on video.

    looks a bit like the guy who played the were-wolf on Buffy...no?

    and, uhm, it is TOTALLY like manga--the mouth and the nose are spot on

    Manga! I think with manga you must always be shouting even the most mundane of dialogue. JOSH! GOOD LUCK WITH FINDING A JOB! *Weird stress tear thingy*

    You know what's funny? I've had manga fans tell me that they don't see the manga influence in my work or that it's not manga enough.

    I guess I'm an artist without a genre. *tear*

    Nobody puts Doug in a corner!!!

    Also, what is "manga"?
