Now this toon was a special present for Joel on his 21st birthday. I researched and placed many quotes from his favorite philosophers. It is acutally kinda hard to read, but my goal was to use the written portion to create visual texture. I think I accomplished that, but this would be a good concept to try again sometime. I really like the character, walking along, pondering the cosmos, about to discover that gravity works (falling apple). He is rather R. Crumb-ish.
The concept is really quite simple, but one can spend a long time looking at it, trying to get the quotes. By the way, my favorite quote is by R. Crumb himself. Try to find it.
