BLUE


What is under SocMo's cap? It's BLUE hair! Good Golly Bum!
... SocMo is a Simpson!


BEHIND THE SCENES
I never would have guessed that you could make a hit show with yellow people. I never would have guessed that you could sell people water in a bottle. I never would have guessed that I would be drawing a sock monkey. My crystal ball has been out of commission for a long time!

Here are some preliminary doodles I did on this week's idea. I had been thinking of doing SocMo in various cartoon styles. I was wondering how he would look as a Simpson. When I saw the word for this week, I was playing around with the idea and BINGO... that iconic BLUE hair came to mind. Then I was trying to find something else to add to the scene. I like the little side kick. I think they make a good team... Mutt and Jeff. Anyway, it was fun to do.

Great tribute to Marge and her hair and the whole Simpson family. Your sock monkey is just so fun - I look forward to seeing where you take him next. Kudos!

I love socmo! Mixed metaphors with a vengeance! I esp.like the one you did for "free"... I've never been skydiving, for approximately the same reason. The last person who needs to be packing a chute is me...
