The inspiration for Big Belly Banks came from a goose that chased me. It was trying to get a sandwich out of my hand. The higher I raised the sandwich the more the goose stretched its neck trying to reach it. I thought it was hilarious. Later that day I sketched a cartoon looking goose with a long neck. I took a pencil and drew a zig-zag line down it's neck. I thought it would be cool to make a bank that would "Eat" money.
