it's knothead! that zany tree-man; wielding axes and chopping down everything standing in his way! we can see in this picture that he has chopped down a close relative and the squirrel is totally confused because now he has no where to store his nuts.

knothead never talks, usually because he has a family of crows living in his head.

that's a whetstone on his side there for weighing down his important documents when it gets breezy.

So not sure who this character is but it's a fantastic idea even if it's just a random one made up the detail in the character is awesome the form is perfect the little critter with text bubbles also great that axe could use a shine and sparkle about it though a sparkle off the edge or blood nice idea here


I like how you describe what's going on in the drawing. It's not necessary, but it's still a nice touch. I like this probably because it's a more cartoonish image. You don't have to make the picture bigger to understand it. I like how his head is made of wood. I admit that wasn't what I was thinking of when talking about knots.

Eh, I probably still don't get the joke. Squirrels are pretty funny. This was the most humorous drawing I've seen of yours. It really does work. I'm not sure what's up with the negative space at the top of the picture. I guess it makes you eager to scroll down.

Very Original

Man...I keep coming back to your gallery everyday and just looking through to get inspired. Your work makes me want to push even harder with my 3d modeling, I can see every single one of your characters as a kickass 3d model.

hooray! i'm glad my stuff inspires you!

that's always a great compliment to get.




Sad the squirrel got struck by lightening, ah well. As stated on your other works, it has great detail! Crisp as ever and even more bizarre! It would be crazy awesome if you put a nest poking out of the hole in his face... hehe.


jouste responds:


funny you should say that, in my first sketch of knothead i drew a family of crows living in his head with a nest and everything. the lines in this piece aren't as crisp as my newer stuff cause of the DPI differences. thanks for the 10 pal!
