Childhood Heroes! - Majin Buu!

I'm currently working on a small book project that will collect and pay tribute to a lot of the characters that I grew up with and that have influenced my work. Don't know when I'll be done since there's a long list, but for some reason I wanted to start with this guy below....
Those unfamiliar with this character, his name is Majin Buu and he belongs to the wonderful world of Dragonball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

TFK- I am planning on making a small run of squares books and THIS guy will definitely be in it! Thanks for the encouragement!

Tony- I'll think about it amigo. I'll have to ask Guayapizco if he wants to collaborate. ;p

Haha! Go dragonball z! This is a great start, man. Love the colors, your little character studies are awesome and I love how they pop off the surface like they always do. Can't wait to see more, man!

i know nothing about DZ, but i love you love your little onion man!

this is also the best, and most appropriate, usage of the japanese stamp and characters you've been doing lately.

love the strawberry banana feel too! it kind of puts him in an actual time line reference somehow, maybe you're just playing around with my memories like a baker kneads dough, but right on!
