Sunday Funnies: Double Trouble: The Bugsy and Knuckles Chronicles

140315SMSome of you may remember that I’ve been talking for some time of starting a cartoon series about the antics of Bugsy and Knuckles… Well…. I’ve had a couple of false starts, but I’m here today to announce that, starting next Sunday, Sundays on this blog will be devoted to Double Trouble: The Bugsy and Knuckles Chronicles.

Above are the prototypes of Bugsy and Knuckles.  They have gone through many iterations before this one.  A few months ago, I was almost ready to start, but the Bugsy and Knuckles images I drew then were way too complicated to maintain over time.  I didn’t realize that myself, but Caren Osrin Gittleman of Cat Chat with Caren and Cody pointed out the complexity of those drawings to me.  Thanks Caren… You saved me hours of frustration.

So since those drawings, I have probably drawn about 500 versions of Bugsy and Knuckles.  The guys above will do for the start… Just as Mickey Mouse morphed over time, please tune in and see how the boys naturally take their own form as I get used to telling their stories and they get used to the page.

Thanks for stopping by today for our announcement.  Have a great day. And come back next Sunday for their first cartoon.

hugs, Lou (HH), Bugsy and Knuckles
