Man or mouse?

I drew up this image for the "Toonistration Contest" over at Graphic Tales. As part of the discussion on what makes an illustrator different from a cartoonist, Dan Zettwoch commented that "there is...a pre-supposition that cartoonists draw bug-eyes and sweat droplets and illustrators cross-hatch pirate scenes." Hmmmm. Playing off that riff, D.B. Dowd has put forth a call to arms for artists to construct a hybrid of sorts. So, this monstrosity is my cross-hatched concoction. Contest "winners" will be posted on September 3rd at Graphic Tales.

UPDATE: Contest results and continued discussion on the topic: here
