I went all-out for Dave, using three sheets of paper so I could make extra outfits for him. I was inspired.
The anime face on the T-shirt is from Key the Metal Idol. My friend Mee-Lise and I were strangely obsessed with this series in college, and particularly with one of the minor characters, a chubby otaku named Tsukiyama. Tsukiyama wears a nerd vest like the one I drew over the T-shirt. Man, I loved Tsukiyama. He was so cool.
I ended up drawing Dave in that tweed blazer a lot. I thought he looked cute. I may have been wrong.
Tsukiyama’s so awesome.
