Red Panda and the Flying Squirrel

I talk a lot on here about how much I love Decoder Ring Theatre, and at least one of my readers listened (the rest of you should, too!). Maka Takahara and his two daughters commissioned a drawing of the show's flagship characters, the Red Panda and the Flying Squirrel. I recently got to meet Gregg and Clarissa, the voices of the characters, and tried to incorporate their features (albeit through the haze of memory and cartooniness) a little into the designs.

Awesome. Can't believe it followed Gus and Call. (Fun Fact: While the Red Panda was always named August in my head, Kit's calling him "Gus" came directly from Clarissa's love for Lonesome Dove in general and Gus in particular)
