Country Characters

One of the clients I work for owns
I do the art and layout for many of the maps.
One of those maps is for the Darke County Fair.
Each year they have a big musical act at the grandstands.
Each year I get to do cartoon versions of "The Band" for the map.
So far the acts have been REO Speedwagon & Styx.

Each year I put more effort into the characters because the map itself only needs some cosmetic changes to freshen it up. 
This years band is Lady Antebellum.

Below is how they will look on the map.

I enjoyed doing drawing them. I hope the band will actually get to see themselves.

Here are some of the characters that are wandering around the map this year.

Why a guy in a fish costume?
Why not?

I haven't been able to post anything lately due to being busy with a day job and housework, but things have  started hopping again around here in the form of freelance work so I'll just have to start burning the candle at both ends again.
In the mean time here's a page from my sketchbook.

Frogs were just on my mind that day.
One of them may end up in a future book dummy.
