The Tiberius Tiger Show

I'm a huge fan of the classic Hanna-Barbera designs. They were so deceptively simple, so well designed. Within the confined parameters of pre-computer limited animation, these cartoon design giants found ways to incorporate charming, appealling designs. H-B legends like Iwao Takamoto (who designed Scooby Doo and Hong Kong Phoeey) are among the biggest influence in my art style.

Here's my humble tribute to them. Tiberius Tiger lives in the City Zoo (naturally), and is always up to some wacky adventure... Much to the chagrin of Zoo Keeper Ollie Oxenfree!
