artist spotlight: [ southerndrawl ]

the man has animal instincts. and a tool chest full of skills.
southerndrawl has a distinct ability to capture believable emotion in the unbelievable characters he creates. intensity and seriousness in caricature creatures is incredibly difficult and he does it so damn well.

i think i'm drawn to his work because this is the kind of shit i have in my sketchbook, just not nearly as good. maybe some day. he's been gathering fans wherever he goes, but his latest creation is what really brought him to a new level.

muttpop tequila minotaur
free of the labyrinth, on a path of destruction.

some tats from prison, some from hell.

the last guy who took a picture of his back is now in three pieces.

lifeless eyes. watching you bleed yourself dry.

badger munny.
angry because he's stuck with a little ween nubbin.

sabertooth madl.
chipped his tooth opening a can of tuna.
don't laugh or he'll chip the other one on your skull.

ram panda teddy troop.
a bear with horns? k-i-l-l-e-r.
he's like the voltron of animals.

could use a hand sharpening the other two horns.

rabbit qee.
tatooed by elmer fudd.

qee-munny wolverine.
built to actual size.
you gotta problem with 16" canadians bub? didn't think so.

it be ahab munny and moby labbick.
we'll be eating blubber sandwiches for months.

i can't wait to see what sick puppy he's gonna toss out next.
better get in line, because he's gonna be busy.
