"I'm a Hammah"

Just a crude sketch I put together during my lunch break.
I envisioned a anthropomorphic claw hammer.  Friendly and well-meaning, he's not the sharpest tool in the shed. He misidentifies anyone (and anything) he encounters as "NAIL!!" and tries  to pound it. 
When a real nail crosses his path, he trips over it.

Cute picture. You could do a lot with this character- like the way you've thought it out. But couldn't help thinking of the song, "If I had a hammer."

I'll admit the song drifted in my head too while I was drawing him!
Someone could have a lot of fun with cartoony tools-
The Vice would have bad habits, The Drill would be boring, The Screwdriver would be a con artist, etc... but it'd be a hard idea to sell.

Is he a rapper?

Hi Stray,
He tried rapping once, but got in big trouble because he put dents in the coffee table.
