I created "Curious Zero" as a special print for an in-store signing at ZeroFriends Store in San Francisco. ZeroFriends has a special gallery on the back wall of the shop that showcases various artists' interpretation of their mascot, Zero. I thought it might be fun to suggest that zero is a space monkey with a yellow robotic companion. The idea bounced around in my head for a few months and after a couple of false starts, I got a solid design down on paper. For the robot, I decided to resurrect an old design from my self-published comics days. For the monkey, i went back and forth with different creepy designs but settled on a cute-yet-alien version. Prints of "Curious Zero" are available in the Store section of my site. Below are a few process shots.
