Cratchet and Son


From a couple years ago. I never tire of depicting Sam & Max in a Charles Dickens setting. It inspires a sort of out-of-character sincerity in them that I enjoy.

Nice, I haven't seen that one before. Excellent job!

And an excuse to dangle dead geese by their feet

I like it a lot! The only thing that is kinda weird is Sam's body looks weird without his dog feets showing.

fizzymitsu--
Sam's feet are bound into those tiny boots like a geisha. I wanted him to appear long and lean unlike his usual Stephen King body type. I have an idea for this year's card. Hopefully I'll have time to do it.

Mr. Purcell, is there a chance of showing some drafts from Bobbin of loom? I love art in that game, and i believe it was somehow forgotten.
Please excuse my english, and thanks for designing most of the worlds that took part on mi childhood.
Cheers from Argentina.

Never saw it coming.

But it is, indeed, cute and prettiful (a strange, lactose of beautiful and pretty).
