These top 2 that and the middle sketch are new, but the bottom 2 are from a while ago. Figured I'd post 'em for those who hadn't seen where the phobia craze started (and also to make it look like I did twice as much...) So the idea was to stick with the same character and style. It was a little weird reverse engineering the flash file and trying to carry over similar characteristics - kinda restricting actually. And I hafta credit Jeff Williams for the original color treatment back in '05 and for maniacally forcing me to pick "coal dust" this time around...

For those of you who are constantly pestering me with your sayings of words like "Monty Python isn't educational!", take note! In the beginning of the "Miner's Homecoming" sketch, John Cleese does an intro over a photograph of a mining town. He lists the hazards of life in the mines with much gravitas. I can't remember it exactly, but there's cave-ins, dirt, suffocation, and the constant threat of "Pneumoconeosis, which is a disease miners get!"

Bob's got some different form of the word here, but the latin root is the same.

So, HAH to you, mom!

Funny drawins, Bob.

The one with all the stuff on the character's left side is another Dead Rising reminder for some reason. :)

Nice posing choices!

Love 'em, Bob! Especially the orbiting eyeballs on the lung cancer piece.

And thanks for the credit, though it was still John Nevarez that really spawned the idearrr.

Your characters are so incredibly expressive, Bob. The exaggerated faces and features are brilliant.
