Kenny vs. Spenny


More caricatures...It feels good being able to draw just for the fun of it. I usually don't get the time to during school or work.

Today I've attempted to capture Kenny and Spenny....Probably one of the funniest and most original shows to come out of Canada.
For those of you who have never seen it. Kenny Hotz and Spencer Rice are two best friends. Kenny, a crude antagonist and Spenny, a neurotic pacifist. Every week the two compete in a bizarre competitions like “Who can wear an octopus on their head the longest?”, “Who can gain the most weight?”, or “Who can break the most laws?”…stuff like that. The loser must complete a “humiliation” as decided by the winner. The show works perfectly…Kenny cheats…while Spenny tries to win fair and square…they clash big time.

I often wonder how authentic the show is or how much of it is scripted. Every once in a while I do some stand up comedy at Yuk Yuks and one night Spenny was there as well…I spoke to him off to the side while we waited to do our set and he was EXACTLY how he is in the show…goin on and on about how nervous he was about doing stand up, and he has no idea why he’s doing it, he doesn’t even enjoy it...blah blah blah.

“Real” or not that show is hilarious…lookin forward to the new season this year.
