My friends Mia Partlow and Michael Hoerger asked me draw a little author pic to go along with the release of their incredible book, Edible Secrets. And when I say little, I mean little. The illustration is only two square inches.
The original inked version of this illustration was for thank-you cards for Deep Roots Animal Sanctuary. I then colored it in to use on buttons and possibly t-shirts.
I just sent off my submission to the Soyfucker comics anthology zine. I decided to use my vegan asshole humor and attempt to expose some of the flawed logic often employed by omnivores. Don’t get me wrong, I strongly encourage everyone to eat locally. But killing animals is still killing animals. Regardless of your justifications, it is cruel and unnecessary. Ok, stepping off my soapbox for now.
I was waiting for some photos to upload and just started sketching. This is what came out. I’m pretty sure it is because Jerico and I were talking the day before about doing a “silent comic” depicting animals tearing apart humans. Yes, that is an abominable snowman.
Say hello to Fatty Eddie Apple. He is one of the two cats who have been living at the Deep Roots Animal Sanctuary since before it was a sanctuary. As I sat on the couch this evening to do some sketching, he laid in front of me and posed for a portrait. Fatty is very sweet – sometimes annoyingly affectionate.
I bought a new sketch book this weekend. This is the first page – total fucking randomness. I was pretty tired and had no direction when I started drawing. My apologies for the crappy scan. Not sure what happened there and I’m too tired to rescan.
