The first Christmas drawing I posted was for Dave, and this one was for his wife, Carrie. As with the other drawings I tried to combine two of her interests: She likes Kirby, and, well, who doesn't like the Muppets? Any video game fan knows that Kirby's signature move is to inhale his enemies and copy their abilities, so I thought it would be cool to use that in an unconventional way. I've seen lots of people base fan art around this same idea, but the thought of applying Kermit's iconic design to Kirby seemed like a winner. Kermit's design is really pretty amazing; so memorable yet so simple. I mean what else can you think of that uses that "collar" and eye shape?
