Turtle Torino

An old friend of mine, which is an understatement considering we go back 20 years, emailed me this afternoon requesting a black and white illustration commission of a turtle smoking a cigarette. He needed a decal for his car that was similar in style to a friend of his whom uses a monkey.

His description of what he needed simply stated, “Can you draw me a cartoonie turtle smoking a cigarette.  He needs to be kind of rugged and standing up right.” He also attached an image of the one his buddy has as a reference for the style.

I could think of no more a rugged looking character than that of Clint Eastwood from his latest film, Gran Torino. I present to you all, Turtle Torino.
