“Why Keroppi?” by Jesse Baggs

“Why Keroppi?” Ballpoint pen on paper, 8.5×11″.

Why Keroppi? Well, a girl I liked in high school was a Sanrio fan, and Keroppi was easy to draw, so I drew him in obnoxious ways in order to get her attention (don’t worry, we had a mutually antagonistic relationship). Keroppi therefore ended up one of the things I draw automatically and without thinking. As for the rest, well, other than the fart, it looks a bit narcissistic. At least I also misspelled “Mennen.”
