10. Guy Who Bought A Mogwai

My regular style is pretty simple already but I’m trying to develop an ultra-simple style for quick gag comics with throwaway characters. This is for a gag that’s already written. I took the time to look up some images from the movie Gremlins (which I’ve never seen. I only know it through the lore around it) and altered the character’s look that I had in my head to hint at the unfortunate young man who gets a Mogwai as a present.
I know he’s breaking one of the rules of safe Mogwai-handling already. I don’t care, the planned gag works better if he’s visible. Simplifying the Mogwai will be a bit of a challenge – as you can see, he’s quite a bit more detailed than the human character. Maybe that’s how it should be because it’s such a direct reference? IDK.
