CHARACTER DESIGN: Kid Zingo

Kid Zingo is a the cartoon spokesman for my newest venture:  Zingo Maps.   I’ll no doubt be posting about Zingo Maps in the future , but for now let’s concentrate on Kid Zingo.  I wanted a friendly, wholesome looking character to place on my web pages, possibly animated, and on promotional material for Zingo Maps.   I wanted him simply drawn.  Complicated characters are a pain to animate.   I suppose my influences for him were a bit of Bill Watterson’s Spaceman Spiff and  Dick Sprang’s Robin.   Two of the greatest cartoonists of all time, by the way.  Here is the first version.   What do you think?
