Who's ready for a fun fact? You are, that's who!
I based Lipigrasa Von Jollybelly on two different things. One of those things was a silly drawing I did of a super-fat man posing sexily on a stool for one of my Art Studio classes at Sac State (my teacher got a kick out of it). The other thing is, I also based Jollybelly's physique on how my uncle used to look a long time ago when he didn't care about what he ate.
