Stickie Nakedness AGAIN.

Part 3.

WARNING: Possibly more nudity. Maybe.

In the last post, I asked how one can tell if a stick figure is naked or not. I'm just gonna rip the bandaid off this one and go for it. The thing is, if the stick figure looks like this:

...then it's pretty much impossible to say. Why? Because there's no point of reference! There's nothing 'missing'!

Indulge me. If we dress the stick figure in ONLY a pair of pants, look what happens:

He's suddenly topless!

And if we dress him in ONLY a t-shirt...Voilà! Pants Optional!*

*Pants Optional Friday was all the Why is Daddy Crying's idea BTW.

Finally, if we dress our stick figure in NOTHING but stylish footwear, he is naked simply by virtue of the absence of the rest of his clothes.

Anyhow, after that last post there was some, uh, discussion on Twitter about the scale and relative sizes of certain stick men. So just to clear things up, I've done this character line-up. It's worth noting here that objects are actually larger than they appear in the mirror.

There's @jpJeremy, @WhyIsDaddyCryin, @JosephGier and me. I threw Pickle Weasel in for fun cuz @VlasicStork wanted to see him in a bow-tie and it tied in really nicely with the whole Chippendales thing. And @kathym425's suggestion of Uggs was genius for hawtness levels. 

Everyone has awesomely stylish footwear!! Yes, those are goldfish - blame @BetterHalfMommy. And crocs (@suzspetals' idea). With twine (that was me).

And so it goes that the dude has been naked everytime I've drawn him. Except for that one time when he's wearing a Snuggie.... or those Spiderman PJ's...

If you love those shoes, then go to Part 4.



  1. I love that 99% of my entire career as a cartoon drawring I've been nude. I live vicariously through my animated self. Oh...and those shoes are award-winning.

  2. Oh my, I think your obsessed with naked stick men and you may need some help; I have the number of a good therapist specializing in such oddities ;) He's a stick figure, but he wears shorts

  3. I love the crocs and goldfish on @whyisdaddycrying! The uggs that I suggested definitely suit Pickle Weasel better :)

  4. Thanks for the great post. I never, ever would have thought of these things.

  5. THAT IS PHENOMENAL! so awesome! make me laugh EVERY time! you need your own show on Adult Swim, just stay away from fox. they wouldn't know something good if it whooped em with a baseball bat.

    Great Job!

  6. Pretty sure you made daddy's package way too big.

  7. Why is Daddy Crying is wearing stripper shoes (I always loved the stripper shoes with goldfish in them) how AWESOME! And I'm so happy I now know how to distinguish naked stick people from non naked stickies! Thanks for stick drawing 101!

  8. Ya' know, out of everything, your bunny slippers make me smile the most.

  9. Pickle Weasel looks great in a bow tie! I totally love your bunny slippers too!

    Daddy's Crying's shoes remind me of the shoes from "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka"!


Cuz You Rocketh.
