FUNNY! I love "Creepy Gary" too, reminds me of Gary I knew in high school.

I'm going to do an illustration for the "Gallery of Terror" and post it on my blog. I just wish that I was able to whip-up that art like you do...jeez!

Yer Darn Good!!

Now that's a bummer... it sure ain't no Shawshank Redemption! I love Gary...he's very creepy and very scary. The hand position is perfect!

This illustration could also be a great commentary for those of us who work at home! Sometimes it feels like it's all you do and you can't get away from it! Hee hee!! Very funny illustration, Guy!

I also really like the colour Gary (sorry for the canadian spellings!) And that beaver from last week! What a great design!

I know it's a week later, but I finally have a moment to praise your work on this brilliant illustration. So witty and clever - made me laugh...drew me in to look at all the details - the candlelight illunimating his expression is priceless. I hope you submit it as a cartoon for a major magazine!
