This zine is a collaboration between myself and Rachel Garner, educator and animal science writer (whyanimalsdothething.com), who contributed captions.
The animals were drawn from life at the Toronto Zoo, and later digitized into risograph files.
It ended up as a 40 page zine, risograph printed with 4 inks (black, yellow, blue, red) on ivory vellum paper.
The Aspects prints are a doodle series exploring individual cats. So far they've featured Pangur the Oriental Longhair, Wednesday the Domestic Shorthair, and Grim the Bengal-cross.
These are 1-colour risograph prints on ivory vellum paper.
The Horrible Drawings™ began as a fun, quick way to interact with the followers of my blog. They sent reference photos, and I sent back 2-minute renditions of their beloved companions.
It was initially supposed to last a weekend, but a few months have passed, I've drawn over 300 animals, and this style has taken on a life of its own!
Scroll down to see photos of animals with their drawings.
The style has since taken on a life of it’s own, and is quite useful for illustrating spur-of-the moment ideas! These designs are available on clothing at greerstothers.threadless.com
