Captain Hand Puppet


I've been invited to participate in the Toon Club. Thanks guys. It's a honor to hang with such talented people. I hope I can regularly put stuff up. I missed the last topic by a smidge, but I can't miss the opportunity to post useless superheroes. It's like my favorite thing to draw. Something about superheros that serve no purpose is soo funny to me. This is an old one, but it is still a useless superhero. When you fight crime with hand puppets the world is your stage! (It's just tiny-- a little puppet theater.)

I like the new topic. I'll need to think about this one... hmmmmm

Welcome to the club, Cactiguy. I'd be pretty intimidated if someone came up to me with puppets on their hands and started acting out some overwrought scene in high-pitched voices. At least that's how I imagine he would attack someone. Nice watercolor feel to your art.

So this is your cartoon crush? I kid, I kid... I love it, Guy! Welcome to the club.

If you're lucky we'll keep choosing topics you've already drawn something for. I love this, Guy! We're glad to have you in Toon Club... you do excellent work. This is no exception.

I think I'll make a list of things I've drawn so we can stay on my topics better. Good idea!

Welcome to the club, Guy! I love your entry. I imagine that, when people come to ask for help, he makes them talk to the puppet. Great water color feel to it. Glad to have you!

This is awesome!

(Hey! Guy's too good, aren't we supposed to get bad artists so we can feel good about ourselves?)

Haha, it's great to see sublime work. Gives us all something to shoot for. Follows the very illustrative watercolor style.

I believe I've already told you how hilarious this character is. Just the very idea of someone who fights crime with handpuppets is both rib-cracking funny and scary at the same time; but assuming for a moment he's sane, he's a riot! Thanks for posting Captain Hand Puppet. He's so awesome!

I love how he appears to be talking out of the side of his mouth. Also I love that both hand puppets look just like him with the exception that those hand puppets don't have hand puppets on their hands which don't have handpuppets...you get the idea.
