Newt Jersey #5
A friend of mine, we'll call her Bridget because that's her name, proposed an interesting concept - she interpereted that Newt was the name of a single character, and he just looks different every time. This blew my mind. I wish I was so clever. Instead, the characters are just whatever googlie eyed monster that comes out first (in the scripts, they are called Amon (for a monster,) and Amon and so on.) Characters inevitably emerged. The stalk-eyed, claw-handed scientist seen in this one is the oldest, and the subject of a great many page-margin doodles through the years. Is any of this interesting? Also, the phallicness of the test subject was pointed out to me after I drew it. I decided not to change it.
