Gussy hates your housepets.
Gussy, the Big Jerk of a Little Bear, began as a recurring character in a comic book I drew. He was the insufferable ex-boyfriend of another character, forever hanging around and moping.
Eventually Gussy’s aggressive pessimism grew on me, plus he was fun to write, draw, and sculpt. He became kind of my mascot, adorning numerous website avatars, my signature, and even this site.
Nice to see Gussy after all these years!
It’s just impossible to get rid of the little bastard.
