Igor Employee Entrepreneur

Don’t mind me.  These two versions of Igor (as employee and entrepreneur) are just some visual concepts of a story that I am thinking of doing.  I think it is now on item number 204 of things I want to get done.

    What a difference a tie makes 🙂

  2. Bo Lumpkin says:

    Igor is lookin’ good in both pics. 204 is pretty far down the list. If it don’t make my top 20 I don’t write it down.

    • Bearman says:

      I know but if I said it was in my top 20, then I would have people like George bugging me that I need to flesh it out. And I don’t need that pressure.

  3. George says:

    I’m very interested to see how this will turn out. I love both concepts, there’s much you can do with this idea.

  4. Midtoon says:

    It reminds me of Krusty the Clown. The murderer is the one on the right! I know it because of the size of his feet.

  5. Hahaha… yup.
    *sigh* This looks about right.

  6. DadaHyena says:

    Looks more like Quasimodo. Igor, or more properly Ygor, was the broken-necked blacksmith played by Bela Lugosi in “Son of Frankenstein” (1939), who has since been forever confused with the hunchback lab assistant Fritz (played by Dwight Frye) in Universal’s first film of the series,”Frankenstein” (1932).

    Sorry…I’m a geeky little fanboy. Bear with me.

    • Bearman says:

      I always put both those hunchbacks in the same category. To me any Igor is some mad scientists (or Dr Frankensteins) assistant.

      • Jande says:

        Terry Pratchett agrees with you Bearman. He has a whole series of Igors that make up a specific race(species?)in his Discworld series of books. They service what passes for the other races as “robin-hood style” medics picking up body parts in one place and stitching them on where needed. Hilarious!

    Are these for workplace motivational posters?

  8. Comedy Plus says:

    What a difference a bath, new suit and a new hairdo makes. Not to mention the attitude.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  9. alecho says:

    This looks like a good comic idea! I’m also on the same boat as you are… I’m already drawing a weekly comic but I keep getting ideas for new ones… not a good sign, eh 😉

  10. MJ says:

    Ha! Outrageous!

  11. Binky says:

    This could be one of those “Can you spot 10 differences between these two pictures” exercises. I’m just trying to figure out what you’re saying about the entrepreneur by making his feet so big.

  12. I like the employees duds. There aren’t enough crinkle cut shirts in the world

  13. Friggin Loon says:

    Cool, I’ve found all 10 differences

  14. jb says:

    Hey man that’s cool. Igore has com a long way from working with Dr. Frankenstein’s lab. Good luck on the story,if you do it.

  15. Jason says:

    I thought it was the Hunchback of Notre Dame and the Hunchback of Notre Dame Business School.

  16. Scholar Mel says:

    I’d hate to see what the unemployed Igor looks like.

  17. This could be a good message to curtail drinking. The Igor on the left is how he really looks. The Igor on the right is how women see him after heavy drinking.

  18. Corve says:

    Good luck….

  19. Tony McGurk says:

    I think he cut up his smelly old peasant top to make that suit jacket. Does he have a girlfriend or wife or is he a Hunchback with Not-a-dame

  20. lisleman says:

    I hate lists so I rarely write down things I plan on doing. If you don’t write it down then the idea will give you a deja vu experience later.

  21. you don’t even want to know how many projects are in my head at any given time.

    it’s the curse of the creative.

    • Bearman says:

      I want my own little army just to do all my work of what is in my head. The real frustrating ones are the type that I couldn’t do even if I devoted time to it due to lack of skill.

  22. It would be funny if they were roommates or twins.

  23. Jande says:

    I write things down and then promptly lose them, unless I write them down in a notebook and then promptly forget which one I wrote them in, or unless I put them in a note file in the computer which has a 1 in one million chance of me ever finding the file again.

    Good thing you drew a picture of it. This looks like it could be an intriguing series of cartoons, so add me to list with George and Bo. –and don’t lose it! ;`)

    • Bearman says:

      I’m with you. I have to start writing stuff down or I forget so quickly.

      • Tony McGurk says:

        I have a list of cartoon ideas in my phone so I remember them. I often have ideas during the day & if I forget to add them to the list down then later I get annoyed because I’ve forgotten another good cartoon idea.

  24. My favorite Igor is Igor Lirionov.


  25. “I think it is now on item number 204 of things I want to get done.”

    Omg, and you still have time to draw and post this awesome toons on your blog! Congrats buddy.

  26. That’s really a good difference on this cartoon.I am totally agree.

  27. Scott says:

    Before and after! Or after and before!

    Reminds me of a silent film entitled “The Crowd”–in which a well-to-do man laughs at a poor man in a silly suit advertising for his employer, then finds himself in the same situation for a time.

    Also reminds me of Bob Dylan’s lyrics: “You used to be so amused at Napoleon-in-Rags and the language that he used. Go on he calls you now, you can’t refuse. When you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose.”

    In other words, “Igor” is perhaps the same man, at different stages of his life.

    • Bearman says:

      Just read up on The Crowd. That is a movie I would love to see. Interesting they say it wasn’t a critical success yet it was nominated for an academy award.

      • Scott says:

        That’s because critics don’t know shit! I have no respect for critics–they don’t do any art themselves, yet they criticize the art of others! What hypocrites!

  28. Wow!that’s a lovely collection with good reviews.
