Your work seems to me fantastic is so retro… to sees is seems to me vector (I have a very small screen) but soon pays attention well and is even more astonished. You do not speak Spanish, truth? Saúdos and apertas.

Cheryl Lynn said...

I LOVE MR. SHACKLETON! He is so dapper and I can understand his concern with his chauffeur following the speed limit. I'm sure he's much too busy to be detained by the police! Hahaha!

Great illustration as per usual!

marcus said...

Eric - these characters are great! I could see them populating a whole community. Are they English? They seem like they should definately have accents.

leolietje said...

although it does not look fast... it looks great!

ArtSparker said...

He looks quite chastised, indeed.

thedoodlegirl said...

Haha--I hate it when my chauffeur drives too fast! This is fantastic!

Alissa said...

Way to put him in his place! Love it!

erin said...

this is why you should never hire a walrus as a chauffeur, stick with seals, although they're always honking the horn, can't win.

yoon see said...

Well done brother Eric.
Really love all your works.
You are the kindest person I see.
I really hope to meet up with you in person.
Your illustrations also show the same friendliness, the characters are always remained in my mind!
I love your illustrations, you are my inspiration to create more beautiful works:)
Happy weekends and please write to me when you are free:

Bella Sinclair said...

BAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh my goodness, I just love this little guy. Driving Mr. Shackleton! Maybe it would help if Mr. Hudson would open his eyes while driving. You are such a hoot, and so AWESOME!

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh, I nearly forgot to mention!

I LOVED that fox video! How great is that. PILEDRIVE Hahahahahhaha! Oh, yes, yes, yes. If you go to the fox store, please pick one up for me, too.

Actually, I read about this man in China who raised this dog from a pup. But as this pup grew, he started to stink, no matter how often the man bathed him. Turned out, it was a wild fennec fox.

So on second though, no fox for me. Have a great weekend!

matt dawson said...
