In the second of our new-but-not-so-new #tbt mash-ups we give you … Jungle Jim, a character created back in 2012 – and one of the first littleblokes doodles!

JJ has dedicated his career to finding the mysterious Ohmeguleese Bird, searching the tropics and rainforests of the world, collecting rare insects and orchids along the way…

TBT: Jungle Jim by Marc Heyhoe

This was originally a pencil sketch before I was even inking or colouring, hence why the character outlines appear a bit ‘jagged’. I could have compensated or cleaned-up and vectorised — but I decided to keep ‘as is’ while I gave it a Photoshop-colour-wash.

I also didn’t realise, but the modern littlebloke of 2015 has lost his eyebrows, and has one less finger. Reverse evolution perhaps? I think I’ll stick with the four fingers – but the eyebrows might have to come back …
