Original Work: "Dudes," by joshpurple

No doubt, this is my most original work, style, concept, etc.  Since before I can remember ( like.. ~ 3 or 4 years old?), this is me creating art; pen, pencil, crayon, on paper, etc. doodling creatures/characters quickly.  Hopefully, if you can see this at full scale, -it's pretty much the scale at which I draw these characters out.  I would LOVE to doodle out pages and pages and pages of characters like this, all connecting along 8.5" x 11" sheets of paper.  I've attempted to do comics, cartoons, children's books, posters, t-shirts, etc. with my characters (even a company once, "Dudes by Josh"), all resulted in complete failure :D .   


  1. That's really cool, Josh. You've got a lot of great character designs in that. I dunno why but I immediately think of Fraggle Rock when I see this. Maybe cause it looks like this would work as a great puppet show.

  2. this is my favorite kind of drawing its the kind of stuff that made me want to be an artist
    growing up (preschool-2nd grade) Richard Scarry, Hieronymus Bosch and megaman where my biggest influences.

  3. Purple, you need to have your own TV show. You could be the new mark kistler. You could inspire a whole generation of kids to be creative.

  4. THANK YOU guys :) ! You all nailed it; Richard Scarry, Bosch, Fraggle Rock -Muppets, William Steig, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Edward Gorey, Dr. Seuss, Tomie De Paola, A Wrinkle in Time, -all of those big bug-eyed cartoons = a HUGE influence for me. I would luv to be the new Mark Kistler :D !
