Stop thief!

The brief for this guitar thief illustration was a "typical stumpy character, black eye mask, black and white striped top depicting the thief somehow stealing a guitar" it was to be in the style of "Pink Panther" DePatie-Freleng - and I was looking at 1950's style cartoons generally. I loved hanna-barbera cartoons as a child - so I wanted to evoke that look as well.
I also wanted simplicity, in composition and quality of line to look like it was hand done, so I sent some time in illustrator getting the line work just so for that authentic look.
