Bud Dickman is one of the many hilarious characters created by radio legend Phil Hendrie (philhendrieshow.com/). If you haven’t had a chance to listen to his radio show go to his website, download his free podcast as well as the Bobbie Dooley podcast.

This animation came after I entered a contest to animate another one of Phil’s characters, Mavis Leonard. I really like the way the character came out and afterwards I really wanted to know what the character of Bud would look like. It’s clear from the show that Bud was not a looker; he was in a motorcycle accident that left him with a metal plate in his head. But what made Bud interesting to me was the fact that he was nineteen years old, and designing a character with bad teeth, misshapen head, and a lazy eye, all while making him look young was an interesting challenge.
