Max West Wearing Hanten
For the Dominic & Claire comics (a spin-off of Sunnyville Stories), I was considering putting myself in the story, caricatured as a red fox wearing Japanese clothes.  Here, my alter ego is wearing a hanten, a thick Japanese jacket worn in colder weather.  The idea was that Mr. West (me) is a freelance illustrator living on Dominic's street.  When not in his studio drawing, he is out in town, doing rapid sketches in his sketchbook with a pencil or pen.  Some of the moms in New Gestad (the town where the comic is set) think Mr. West is a weirdo and warn their children not to associate with him, though Dominic and Claire seem to like him.

The idea for this caricature came from Dr. Slump, Akira Toriyama's debut manga.  Toriyama depicted himself in Dr. Slump sometimes either as an anthropomorphic bird or a robot.  

Drawn with mixed media on 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock

Have you ever seen an illustration in Richard Scarry’s Busytown books depicting a fire brigade arriving to put out a fire on Huckle Cat’s House, but it shows Huckle looking out his bedroom window and tossing out a paper airplane, seemingly unconcerned with the fact that his house just happens to be on fire? That always befuddled me.

I remember that - it was in What Do People Do All Day?  Maybe Huckle didn't realize what was going on.
