welcome to chibi stick figure kekionga: josef

Kekionga chibi-josef1-blogIt’s a Kekionga truism that Josef is the Main Character. Every story that has Josef in it is automatically a story About Josef.  My (now) very old corgi, Toby, was a puppy when Kekionga’s rules and cast were first being established, and if Josef’s behavior bears some resemblance to that of a wild young corgi, well, I suppose it isn’t accidental.

But, while he fills the role in the stories usually taken by the dog, Josef is not a dog.  He is a weird and highly intelligent creature from another dimension, and all bets are off.  Pretty much exactly like a dog, really.

Chibi stick figure Josef doesn’t really look all that different from regular Josef, except for his more angular head and ears and simplified body, neck and legs.  He also has the new spiral spot pattern on his hindquarters.

    It’s interesting that Chibi Josef extends the neck and limbs, while most chibis shorten everything up.

    Chibi Josef is still Josef.

    One thing that’s interesting is that some of the chibis, despite being simplified in most ways, still have 5 fingers on each hand. At least, that seems to be the case in some of the drawings of Bud and Jack.

      I guess I worked too hard to learn to draw a five fingered cartoon hand even halfway decently to give it up because of an artistic convention. And I did say they were “a kind of chibi”, not totally conventional ones!

        Quit agonizing over it. Those are Pam Bliss Hands and that’s that, They fit your style admirably.

    Indeed he is! He’s very cute! And fierce!

  5. Pam Bliss says:

    Yes. I like the extra skull-like appearance of the more angular head treatment.
