They Can Talk: Comics by Jimmy Craig, an artist who perfectly understands animals

Have you ever been concerned about “What would animals say if they could talk?”jimmy craig, they can talk, comic, strip, animalsI guess that 90% of us has at least once in our lives thought about this question. Some of us might have dug deeper and might have had a look into ethology  – the science studying animal behavior. Or you might have simply used your instinct and realized that the neighbor’s cat’s claws stuck in your leg are not a sign of achieving new animal-human friendship or the cat’s desire to be petted. 

Jimmy Craig, 30 years old artist and animal lover is asking this question all the time. And not only that, when he thinks he found the answer, he sits down and portrays his findings with hilarious comics.

His awesome work will not only make you smile but also realize how accurately he managed to understand the world of fauna.

According to the interview that he gave to Huffington Post, he is not very good at drawing people; his biggest issue is drawing hands and legs (oh yes, that sad realization when you firstly come in the kindergarten and you are told that human palms don’t consist of five tiny dashes).  So he decided to give up on humans and stick to animals. And we are so grateful for that because, without his decision, he wouldn’t have started his popular website http://theycantalk.com/ where he publishes one comic a week (Sunday night).

And what would be his biggest accomplishment? If he walked into a bookstore and saw a book titled “They Can Talk” on one of the shelves. Fingers crossed with that! We hope to see your book soon.

 

Popeye dog exploding on Instagram in L.A. city

Have you ever felt that you that your life sucks? Have you ever felt that even a street dog has a better life than you?Well, I can reassure you that you are absolutely right.

There is a saying in Czech…”I feel like a dog,”  which can be simply interpreted as a feeling of pretty deep depression.

Also in one of the most famous songs of The Beatles, A Hard Day’s Night, where John Lennon sings:  “It’s been a hard day’s night, and I been working like a dog.”

If those two above mentioned sentences should be represented by an instafamous food nazi hipster Popeye, I bet that 99.9% of the human population would happily change their place and jump into deep depression after hard day only to become this doggo.

Doggo, who even has a story to tell: Popeye was found as a homeless stray dog who didn’t have an owner and was desperately looking for a piece of food, running on the streets of Los Angeles. He was lucky. Despite that he was found skinny, dirty and looked nothing like he does now, his foster mother gave him everything (and more) than he needed. He was found and consequently adopted by a Vietnamese family who is also an owner of a restaurant where they serve him the most delicious meals which will definitely make you jealous.

Ps.: No worries, there is a piece of cake for every underdog such as you.
