Go Packers?

As it happens, these two characters didn't make the final cut for Inbound #5's cover, so I am happy to present them to you! I am completely in love with them. While painting them, I devised a little character synopsis about their being tourists in Boston, enjoying their first Fenway Frank. My fascination with gender androgyny rears its head in the hot-dog-eater. (Side note: I've been getting a lot of questions about the Packers hat. I have zero loyalty to Green Bay, I just thought the sports team name could be loosely linked to eating food.)

Also: lobstah!

Edited to add: The Green Bay Packers namesake isn't loosely linked with food, it's very linked! Apparently the name arose due to the fact that an early sponsor was a meat packing company. Thanks, Bob!

  1. They are great characters, it's a shame they couldn't grace the cover! But boy are they enjoying that Fenway dog.
