Fat Menagerie

A blog project I started where I would draw and post a fat animal each week. While it only lasted ten weeks, it had an oddly substantial impact on my artistic practice. The hamster was the first in the series and was and still is my favorite. I even was screenprinted and sold hamster t-shirts for a while. People would ask why a hamster and got to proudly reply, "Why not?" The hamster (and series as a whole) has no deep meaning, but its fun; which is what I believe art should be. I hope as least one gives you a chuckle.
