Horton: A Long Night's Work by Desdemonia Horton: A Long Night's Work by Desdemonia
Okay, OKAY, so... I've seen Horton Hears a Who! like five times now and I love it more than is probably healthy. I am FIVE YEARS OLD, people.

Surprise, surprise, but I love Jojo. I love the Mayor, and all the Whos really, but Jojo appeals to my quiet sciencegeek inventor kick and that hasn't been appealed to in a long time, and come ON. He's adorable.

...I still haven't really got the hang of drawing Whos. Jojo always looks a little too young or a little too sarcastic... Let's say this is a younger Jojo. Still sneaking out, but not having quite gotten the hang of it yet. Sucker fell asleep in his lab. (His Dad's going to pitch a fit. D8)



Hmm. Credit for the (gratuitously busy, meep) frame inspiration goes to :iconotherwise:!

HHaW, Jojo © Seuss

I thought he was a girl when he first appeared in the movie. And considering that he never talks, I would never know he was a dude if the mayor hadn't referred to him as a male.
