Magic tricks by cool-slayer Magic tricks by cool-slayer
...Or rather... illusions. 'Cause a trick is something a whore does for money.

So says Gob Bluth, at least! The character in this deviation. He is my favorite member of the Bluth family, the stars of Arrested Development, probably my favorite comedy tv show of the last few years. It's just awesome! And Gob, man, Gob is my favorite. He is a magician who does a lot of failed illusions, and his routines soundtrack is the song The Final Countdown, by Europe. He speaks in an awesome tone of voice, and... well, he's just Gob. You need to see this show. It's incredibly funny.

This drawing was done based on a scene of the first season, when Gob is showing a new magic trick with cards to his nephew, George Michael.

Gob - The telepathic energy is telling me it's the... eight of diamonds.
George Michael - That's... amazingly close.
Gob - Gee, I got it wrong. Well, I guess you won the shirt of my back! (takes off shirt)
George Michael - Ok, that's amazing!
Gob - It's the Queen of Diamonds!
George Michael - No, no... no...
Gob - What?
George Michael - I.. I had... but if that had been the actual card, I'm pretty sure I'd be almost... TOO blown away... if that's...
Gob - You know, it's, it's a new trick, so I'm still kinda tweaking my nipples...

You have to see this show. You just have to.


It's simple, but I still hope you guys enjoy the drawing!

XD I never see Arrested Development fan art, and this is particularly hilarious~! Your style somehow fits the show's eccentricness as well as Gob's 'loveable douche'-y ness. <3

There's some good fan art :) But this show sure needed more. I'll try to get some more done as soon as I have free time. Love me some Arrested Development.
