This zine is a collaboration between myself and Rachel Garner, educator and animal science writer (whyanimalsdothething.com), who contributed captions to tie it all together.
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 money & a reference photo, and I sent back a 2-minute rendition of their beloved companion.
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 Horrible Drawing™ style is used when I have a funny idea that needs to be executed before I stop laughing.
