#1 Professor Howard Brookenstein

Working Sketch of Professor Brookenstein

The Professor - the smart one...

Here’s my first character that I did last week, but never got the chance to ink – but I wanted to post him as is since I am already in the weeds here!

Professor Howard Brookenstein will play a part in the Rick the Stick ‘Cartoon Mob Syndicate’ conspiracy plot. He’s both highly educated and very connected – both with the government and an underground society. I am toying with a few of angles with him.

  • He’s supplying the syndicate with formulas that allow them to “taint” products
  • He’s being blackmailed into supplying the syndicate with the formulas
  • He’s working with Winchester Havercamp, Rick’s inherited caveman, trying to break the syndicate.

Anywho, that’s the inspiration behind this character. Any suggestions? One down, twenty-nine to go!! Nice work on the posts already created by the 30/30 creators/authors already today!! WOOO!

    I quite like option 3, the idea that, though apparently working for the syndicate, he’s actually working against them. You could take that a bit further by making him a double-double-double agent, where his allegiances keep on flip-flopping back and forth in a string of betrayals. Really emphasize how smart he is by showing how ahead of everyone else he is.

    Nice start, looking forward to what else develops over the next 29 days. Can’t wait to see the Professor in the RTS world. Keep up the good work.
