One never knows where one will acquire inspiration for a character design. One must always be open to all avenues of muse-dom. For instance, one could be reading an article about the television show Dancing with the Stars (which one DOES NOT watch by the way), and see that actress Jennifer Grey is appearing on the show. In seeing a photo of Ms. Grey, one notices that someone must have visited a surgeon of plastics causing said observer to be wistful of the day when Ms. Grey had a hook nose as seen in Ferris Beuller’s Day Off. And there you have it – Hooknose the character is born.
