Joe and his cup of Coffee


Author Comments

The twisted 1920'ish character is Joe, and I think he's a weasel. The concepts of these "Joe" paintings are used as narrative puns and different views on normal everyday things. In this painting, Joe goes to a large lactating udder that dispenses coffee instead of milk. It's his nourishment to get through the day. But when he gets there, he finds a Hare has violated his coffee by licking it and dipping his pancreas in it too. Joe is running out of time and his watch lets him know it, meanwhile an "evil bird" watches on...death is eminent here. The whole thing is about getting a coffee while late to work and finding a hair in your cup.

NOTE! This is 6ft long!

Actually Joe is a Weasel haha and he was a character who died after only 2 paintings. And then years later when I started the creation of Skitzo and his story and looks...I was looking at Joe and liked his design but not really his character (he was a stressed pushover in the rat race of society) but he did end up being an influence during the creation of Skitzo. So they arent really brothers haha since Joe is dead now. But HEY I suppose he could be considered a step in Skitzos first development stages and creation/evolution.

Great job

I have to admit the comments made the submission way better. Your take on the situation is fantastic; loved it.
