Ahaha, I love your characters. The father looks like he came out of a Rockwell's painting, and then went mad :)

Thanks! The influence for Opey's Dad was the quentessential American 1950's father figure mixed with a little Bob Dobbs. :)

has anyone ever told you your style is very reminiscent of classic underground comix? Not exactly R. Crumb but I can totally see your work hanging with his back in the day. It's refreshing to see. Guess you can tell I'm not a fan of the mainstream.

Thanks! Underground comics have made a great impression on my work, actually. When I went to college, I took some comic strip classes under one Frank Stack, who was one of the first American underground cartoonists. He did comics such as "The New Adventures of Jesus", "American Splendour", and "Our Cancer Year". Not only did he leave an enormous impression on me (he was the one who taught me how to ink my work) but he introduce me to a number of great underground cartoonists, like R. Crumb.

I consider my style a hybrid of underground comics and the Japanese animated American cartoons of my youth.

I don't like this comic as much as I liked Pennies from heaven, which means I like it a lot, but i don't have a platonic crush on it :lmao:

PS: Is opey short for Openheimmer? :D

Yep. Opey is short for Oppenheimer. I thought it would be an appropiate name for a living nuclear bomb. :)

Haha,... I wouldn't like to have such a father^^ he seems a little evil to me... is there a purpose why he never has his eyes open?

Opey's dad (who I've never really given a name) is pretty out there. There's no particular reason he never has his eyes open; it's a stylistic choice I made when designing him. :)

Lol.

Yep, Opey's a kid, but I can definately see why one might think he's an adult. Beyond shortness, Opey really doesn't have any physical features which distinguished him as a kid.
