I realized the other week that I've never (as far as I can recall!) drawn raccoons before. I looked at some google images, then played with 'my style' of raccoon, arriving at the guy going up the stairs. Sort of a nod to Robert's earlier version of a sketch with raccoons in the attic. I'm excited to play with this character some more - now I just need to find a BIG friend for him for my story to see if it's really the right character... What other animals do raccoons 'hang' with anyway?
