Why so scary?

We are working on a logo for "Barrel of Chipmunks", and the chipmunks are coming out way scary. This guy's little eyes have somewhat of a deranged look in them and his very very long teeth and freaking me right out.

The first iterations were profoundly squirrel-ish. Or hamster-ish. Hard to get those cartoon rodents just right.

So my instructions to the logo folks will be "friendlier eyes" and "less menacing teeth". I am having flashbacks to when I worked at the Franklin Mint and we had to discuss the expression on the face of the sculptured Betty Boop...

And I totally love that this is actually "work".
