Travis as New Jersey

It's Travis, the hitchhiking cowboy from Daria as New Jersey from The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension!
This image is done in the spirit of the Daria end credit sequence.

Travis is a young, cute cowboy Daria and her sister Quinn pick up hitchhiking on their way to get Jane and Mystic Spiral out of jail in the episode "Speedtrapped."  He needed a lift to country & western audition, and Quinn was more than happy to oblige, much to Daria's chagrin. You can read about Travis on the Daria Wiki here:

New Jersey is a character from the 1984 film The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. New Jersey is played by Jeff Goldblum, and he wears this ridiculous outfit practically through the whole film.

This is an alter-ego that I had in mind for quite some time, but was afraid of doing it. There belts on top of belts, those woolly chaps, and THAT HAT. I am just awful at hats. Because I am bad at hats, I knew I would have to just straight up copy Travis's canon hat (I actually drew half then mirrored it), so even though New jersey's hat is different, they are both cowboy hats, so it's close enough for me.

Since my Photoshop started to die, I finally upgraded to a Windows 10 PC and bought a copy of Clip Studio Paint. This is officially the first thing I colored using CSP, and I think it turned out pretty good. I gotta keep practicing and learning the new brushes.

Sometimes I think I'm the only person who remembers Buckaroo Bonzai.

Now you never need to think that ever again.
