I knew I wanted to bring out Captain Caveman's innate creepiness with a reasonably realistic face, and when I thought of beings who were mostly eyes and noses, I immediately turned to Ringo Starr. So I tried to model the face off of his photos on the cover of With the Beatles and A Hard Day's Night. The cigarette seemed somehow necessary after I finished the eyes and nose. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out in that it's really, really creepy.

I hate Captain Caveman. He always freaked me out. Partially because as a man, he was clearly nude, even though he was cognizant enough to wear a cape; also because he was entirely covered in hair, which, as a nearly hairless person myself, makes me intensely uncomfortable and a little jealous. Still, when Mel Caylo says draw Captain Caveman, you do it or you get the shit hugged out of you.
