For a workshop on character design we got to draw characters from Oliver Twist. Glee! The Artful Dodger is my favorite character in all the land, so I was happy. The idea here is that Dodger beat up a lot of weak little rich kids and stole their clothes. He sewed on the badges of various boys' private schools like badges of honor: "I beat up some kid from this school and this school and this school. . . ." He has a hat for his hat.
I wanted to do the thing where people resemble animals or the like. The only one I got in was Fagin, who's supposed to be a bit lizard-like. His coattails are his "tail".
