Special Episode 2 (12) - Howler Monkey Origins - Beardo De Stroyer
After 'The Tonic', I decided to focus once again on Beardo's beard for his origin episode. Why does facial hair give him special powers? I have no idea. I originally drew him playing basketball, but then I changed it to soccer, to explain his favourite shirt. Panels 7 and 9 are very similar, and this annoyed me at first, but then I realised that in Panel 7, he's a bitchin' guitarist, but in Panel 9, he's BEARDO DE STROYER (incidentally, in Panel 7 he's playing 'Voodoo Chile' by Jimi Hendrix, but in Panel 9 he's just showing off). Against my better judgment, I used 'WTF' in the final panel... I don't like using text-speak (even in text messages), but I think it fits here... I've since used it again... [If you listen to Fixed Grill podcast #13 - see links - you can listen to my brother rant about this topic.] Cono really does have the greatest beard in the world. Even better than Eddie Vedder's...
