#1Terry Toof

| November 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

My wife has been looking at what I’ve been drawing and believes that I’m addicted to Angry Birds. In fact, I am addicted to something far worse: Terror Birds. I didn’t know which direction I wanted to go with the villain in my story. While I was teaching a reading class, I came across Terror Birds in a book about Prehistoric Animals. It clicked! I was gonna do a twist on Jurrasic Park!

This first character is one of those goofy, wise-mouthed sidekick birds you see in Disney movies like Alladin and Lion King. “Terry” is an ironic reference to Terror, since he’d talk you to death before scaring you into a heart attack. “Toof” gives a nod to his lisp that’s a result of having one tooth.
