INKTOBER 52 2023 Day #7: ODD.
I struggled with this prompt at first. PMD is, like, normal to me, but he’s actually kind of odd, if I step back and think about it I guess. Everything he does is pretty bizarre and “out there”. I decided to turn to google for inspiration, as I frequently do. The results were confusing at first, until I realized that “oppositional defiance disorder” is a thing. It’s “a disorder in a child marked by defiant and disobedient behavior to authority figures”-o.d.d.-which kind of describes PMD at times. I knew I wanted him to be doing something that was prohibited by a sign nearby, but wasn’t sure what. None of the “normal” prohibited signs I looked at really sparked anything. Then I thought back to an Inktober prompt from 2019 when I drew PMD looking dejected, standing outside a Bacon-Mart that had a “no plungers” sign on the door. This image came together pretty quickly after that, and I probably find it more humorous than I should.
