#10 Trixie

| November 10, 2010 | 1 Comment

Trixie is Otto’s wife, and is a lovely person. Smart, sweet and a tad bit shy. Trixie also likes to dress up whenever she can, be it formal or in costume. And she loves hanging out with friends and loved ones.


Short and sweet tonight, and a pretty rough sketch, even more than usual as I’m short on time.

I think I may be done with Gonzogoose strip characters for a while, though. Maybe one or two, maybe not. Might be time to move on to something else…

#9 Simon

Simon says he loves cheese! Yep, a cat that loves cheese, who’d a thunk it? But he not only loves cheese, he’s addicted to the stuff. He’s gotta have it if it’s anywhere in the vicinity.

Simon is a photographer, always seen with his trusty camera in tow.  Simon’s a friendly and fun guy, but he gets pouty if he doesn’t get his cheese.


It’s late and deadlines loom, so that’s all I got tonight sadly. Cheese and cameras. Sorry, I’ll try better next time. lol

#8 Lilu

| November 8, 2010 | 0 Comments

Lilu (pronounced lee-loo) is an artist. A friendly, caring and talented artist, and a good friend. Lilu is very knowledgeable of many things, and she is very talkative about those things, always wanting to share with her friends.

Lilu is never seen without a pencil and pad in her hands, always drawing, getting better and better with every stroke of lead or ink laid on the page.

Lilu is friends with Otto and his wife, the three of them a pack that never travel without one another.


Ran short on time this evening, so I skimped a little on the bio here. As for the missing tail… it’s just out of view. Yeah, that’s the ticket! lol But look, feet! Sure, non-detailed, kind of sketchy feet, but feet nonetheless!

#7 Mr. Cuddle

| November 7, 2010 | 0 Comments

Mr. Cuddle is Gonzo’s landlord, but don’t let the name fool you! He’s certainly not cuddly in the least, though he is cordial… most of the time.

Cuddle is a self-made man. He worked hard his entire life and amassed a certain level of wealth that requires a certain level of lifestyle, and he doesn’t like anything upsetting that lifestyle. So when Gonzo’s late or short on the rent, Mr. Cuddle is right at his doorstep like clockwork. His passive aggressiveness only lasts for so long, then you understand why his surname is a misnomer.

A good man at heart, Cuddle is generous and understanding… to a point, but he expects those around him to be more like him, and when they aren’t, well, they ought to learn to be.

#6 Mimi

| November 6, 2010 | 0 Comments

Everyone has that dream girl or guy, and Mimi is Gonzo’s personified. Unattainable, out of his league, beautiful and strong, Mimi is the girl of Gonzo’s dreams.

Mimi is a strong, independent woman, assertive and in control, but with a softer, sensitive side, compassionate and thoughtful, but not everybody sees that side of her.

She has the voice of an angel and, at times, the temperament of a demon! But her heart is gold.

Mimi and Gonzo are friends, but she keeps him at a distance. Gonzo pines over her, but never pursues her, loving her from afar.


There are a couple of things I realized when drawing this particular character. One is that I don’t like her beak, and it needs some work. haha Two, is I really need to simplify and refine my style for this strip. So, as I said on the onset, these are rough sketches and not necessarily finals. But I like to think that at the very least I am capturing the essence of the characters, both in their bios and in their form.

#5 Java

| November 5, 2010 | 0 Comments

Java, also known as Java Jack, is another of Gonzo’s best friends and partners. He’s a squirrely little guy, hyper as they come and addicted to coffee, hence the nickname bestowed upon him by his friends.

Java is also a tech guru, always up on the latest advances and products, and is never seen without some mobile device in hand, be it his uPhone or uPad.

A real go-getter, Java runs circles around everyone else around him, and constantly has their heads spinning. Java is also a bit on the goofy side and gladly provides fodder for his friends to tease him with, and loves every second of it. He embraces his quirkiness, which is why he and Gonzo get along so well.

#4 Otto

| November 4, 2010 | 1 Comment

Otto is another of Gonzo’s best friends and partners, though the two don’t get to hang out very often. Otto is married, you see, and very busy all the time working on this or that, making moves and whatnot. Plus he lives a ways away from Gonzo. But the two have fun when they do get together, even if Otto is a bit repetitive, and admittedly so.

Otto is an odd Lemur with a witty sense of humor. He is also the master of the straight-faced pun, and you can never tell whether he’s serious or not until he let’s you know. Well, his friends usually know, but not even them always.

Otto is an intelligent fellow well versed in pop culture and technological. A good guy with a big heart, who always wears sunglasses, but swears up and down they are prescription. We believe you, Otto, we do!

Otto and his fellow Ringtails are always buzzing about, never sitting still, always on the move and making things happen.

#3 Mama Goose

Mama Goose

Mama Goose is the mother of Gonzo and Zeb. A single parent, she was tough on the kids playing both mother and father. Oddly she played more of the father role with Gonzo and more of the mother role with Zeb, which could account for their differences. Regardless, Mama loves her kids with all her heart, even if they get on her last fraying nerve!

The boys respect and love their mama, but the three don’t always see eye-to-eye, and sometimes that causes… friction. But it’s all good, love conquers all… right?

Mama, in her earlier days, was a model, a dancer, a singer and an artist. She was popular and never wanting for a date. Sweet, ladylike, but strong and outspoken, Mama is a force to be reckoned with and a woman you want on your side. Compassionate and giving to a fault, Mama’s a good person, and both Gonzo and Zeb, as much as they hate to admit it and strongly deny it, are both Mama’s boys.

#2 Jono

| November 2, 2010 | 0 Comments


Jono (said like Bono) is a highly intellectual fellow (or at least he fakes it real good). Often mistaken for a Gorilla-la-la, Jono is actually a Chimpanzee with a glandular problem. But shhh, he’s sensitive about it.

Jono is one of Gonzogoose’s best friends and one of his partners. The stoic and wise Jono presents solutions to many of Gonzo’s problems, though most of that sage advice consists of Jono calling Gonzo on his crap and telling him to stop thinking and do!

Fun loving and caring, Jono is there for his fellow man, but he won’t hesitate to tell you like it is, but he does so in a lovable way that you can’t possibly refute.

Jono is a teacher, and a good one at that (send the check to Gonzogoose Productions, Jono), but in his spare time, Jono can be found cruising the internet, watching Dr. What, or playing a widely popular internet and mobile game about plant life fighting the undead!

#1 Zeb G. Goose

| November 2, 2010 | 0 Comments

Zeb G. Goose

Zeb is the little brother of the famous and fabled Gonzogoose! Gonzogoose helped raise the little tyke after Zeb’s father died when he was a kid. The two were very close… until Zeb hit puberty.

Now, Zeb is the bane of Gonzo’s existence! The two couldn’t be more different if they tried. Zeb is the everlasting conundrum that Gonzo can’t for the life of him figure out. But they’re brothers and they love each other and support one another. Well, Gonzo supports. Zeb games.

That’s right, Zeb is a gamer. Online MMORPGs mostly, from Worlds of Warfare to Dingos and Dragons, Zeb spends almost all of his time glued to the computer screen amassing gold or fighting bosses. The rest of the time is used for sleeping and eating and watching Anime.

Zeb has tried to be in bands and tried to be a skateboarder, but games won out over all that useless active crap. It’s much more rewarding getting the precious Sword of Izic, or some other nonsense like that.

Zeb’s close friends call him Zeeby, a name Gonzo is not allowed to utter lest he get popped upside the head with a Dr. Piper soda can, the drink Zeb is most addicted to and downs a dozen of a day. For, like, energy of course, to keep gaming!

Zeb also believes the world will end, not by fire or flood, but by zombie apocalypse. “Oh, it’s gonna happen.”


This is the first supporting character for my (eventual) webcomic strip, aptly titled “Gonzogoose”. It’s a character and name I’m known for across the internet, and the strip will be a humor strip loosely based on my life. This particular character is truly based off my little brother, so it makes perfect sense he’d be the first supporting character I create!

Eventually, the Gonzogoose strip will appear at the retooled www.gonzogoose.com. Currently, the site serves as my lettering and logo design portfolio, but it will be divided into three parts: Gonzogoose Productions, Gonzogoose Design and the Gonzogoose webcomic.

So there you have it, a little extra background on the inspiration of this character and more to come! HONK!
