8. The Wholesaler

Sometimes you just need a generic character for a bit part. This man is a wholesaler on Greyfriar’s Isle. He is not particularly good at his job, so he’s usually out of items other people on the island need. That’s… pretty much all there is to him! The image I had in my head before I drew him reminded me of an existing comic character from someone else, but I couldn’t remember who until I actually started this drawing. I now think it’s Boerke/Dickie by Belgian artist Pieter de Poortere. So next time I draw him, I will know what to move away from.
