This is a lovely tribute. It captures everything that Jerry was, both in characters and Emotion

Thanks. But now that I've seen this video [link], I feel that I wimped out showing Jerry's one-slot characters as well.

Thanks for sharing the link. I don't think that at all. It shows that he had both memorable main characters, as well as his great side ones. You've shown that he was more than just the Count or Floyd, he was dozens of side characters Taft made the Muppets special.

Wait, I typed that wrong. I meant "by NOT showing Jerry's one-shot characters". I mean the SS News Flash characters, Angus Macgonagle, Mickey Moose, Paul Revere, Fleet Scribler, Chuckie, a Muppaphone, Doc Bullfrog, Stan Weasel, his aliens, Farley, Herbert Birdsfoot, Freddie the Wonder Horse, monsters, Miss Mousey and many others.

Like I said in the description, I wanted to add Balthazar, Fozzie's Ma and Jerry but I didn't have room. That's it. I didn't think of the characters I just listed.

I even feel guilty about not drawing Statler or Snuffy in here, since Jerry started out with them. I didn't because I grew up with Richard's Statler and Marty's Snuffy.

Well, I'm a little less confused now.
Why not make a 78 Years of Jerry Nelson Tribute II?
You can only put so many Muppets on to one canvas

Didn't Jerry Nelson wear eye-glasses?

Based off pictures, he stopped wearing glasses somewhere near the end of the 80s and the beginning of the 90s. That's just based off photos on Muppet Wiki.

I love it! You should be on Muppet Central Forum

Hmm... I haven't been on there in a while. I don't remember if there is a special art section.

I'd really like my Muppet art to be on ToughPigs and Muppet Mindset, 'cause I'd like to hear their opinion on what they think.
