1338 - Of Chimps And Villains

My friend Earl has been taking voice acting lessons, and I could not be more proud and thrilled for him.  Recently, he shared an exercise where the instructor had him give voice to a silly cartoon villain and a freezing cold chimp.  Both ended up riding a midway ride that was too dangerous for the public.  

It's really evocative work, so much so that I listened to the track about a dozen times while burning this sketch into my sketchbook.  Now the villain and the chimp are more than just voices, although chimps don't have tails.  

The poses and gestures are drawn from my own experience: this is close enough to what it's like to ride the Wooden Roller Coaster at the Pacific National Exhibition. What a great ride!
