IF: Primitive


I hope some people stop by so I can get a vote. Before I ink this drawing I would like see if anyone has an opinion. Should he holding a pencil or a cell phone? Or you can offer something completely different.

Update 4/23/08
So, atomicvelvetsigh had the idea of the caveman holding a mouse and I went with that. It took me a long time to go digital; this image is a bit what I felt like once I took the jump.

Hmm, cell phone would be good. or tax papers :) or a rock to do some petroglyphs with, put him in a cave.

Whatever you do it will be fun.

I like it, it's really funny and I love the expression.

I think that anything feminine related would be funny here - lipstick? thong underwear? Tampon?

Hey nice illustration. Funny! I like the mouse idea. Frequently I think computer illiteracy extends far beyond the cave man and well into modern day. Nice hands!

The mouse was a great choice... especially as I sometimes still see this pose and expression on folk trying to use a mouse these days :)

His giant hands are great!
