I'm doing some private commission work these days and I just needed to doodle something else in between, to relax. Thus it's super simple, a wee bit painterly and I quite like how it turned out, not to mention that I really love the overall subject of this. xD
Character yadda ahead, skip if you don't like/care:Yes, this is a mugshot. Not a cliché one (you know, the ones with a black plate with white stats on it) but one of the simpler ones. It felt more appropriate. And more important - yes, the mugshot is "real". James recently got arrested 'cause he's a silly little shit. He's guilty of 'drunk and disorderly' and probably some property damage as well, I haven't thought everything out yet.
I'm pretty sure it was Charlie who picked him up from the police station (Charlie is generally the first person who comes to James' mind after stuff happened) and I'm also pretty sure that she made a copy of James' mugshot to put on her fridge as decoration. I think she doesn't quite know what to do with all of this so she tries to be relaxed and cool about the situation.
Holly probably got pissed as hell even though it's not her business at all and the incident doesn't really affect her life. We all know how she can be though, so I guess James got many unwanted and unpopular opinions from her about his person that he doesn't quite care about which pisses Holly off even more.
Did I mention that I love making my characters miserable sometimes!? No seriously, I do.

James belongs to me and only me and I shall keep him forever and do all the terrible things to him! ! You are NOT authorized to use this image without my permission, to claim it as your own, etc. Seemingly, this doesn't go without saying even though it should. !
