'Office Fatties' 2 - Electric Boogaloo

10 years ago I could verbally designate the second part of any idea with a simple '[insert topic] 2 - Electric Boogaloo' and get some form of laughter. A chuckle, belly laugh, and the whatnot. Nowadays it usually results in a blank stare. I guess it's just testament to the fact that I am getting old...maybe I should stop hanging out with 18 year olds.

Regardless, big ups to Ozone. (I just popped and locked when I hit the period key).

Here are some of the earliest 'Office Fatties' images. Quick character sketches, to which Mike Flaherty developed some hilarious names. It's funny to look back at these now, and see how they have evolved.

Early Fatties from top down, left to right: Harris Wildman, Zapp and Roger (the fused-together IT guys), Rusty Bennet & Leon Candles. (Painter)

I went back and better developed a concept of Harris Wildman (who now pronounces his name 'Wildmin'). I wanted him to look more sinister and amorphous...the hair color is my homage to young Mike Flaherty.

Harris Wildman, take 2. I've always been a fan of big teeth, perhaps because I've got a large set of choppers, myself. (Photoshop / Painter)
