Anonymous asked: Hello! I just found your blog today and to be honest, I decided to follow you simply because your life seems so interesting! I mean, you're a vetenartist (sorry i just made that up XD)! So I'm wondering, did you have any art lessons in the past? Or drawing has become a part of your hobby since a kid? I keep telling myself, "With a skill like that I would stay at home and become a full-time artist~!" but then I wouldn't be an awesome vetenartist like you, right? XD Sorry for the question!
Cheers for the lovely message!
Art’s a hobby and I do what I can in the time I have, and the illustrations I post here are the result of a lifetime of cartoon viewing and comic reading. Though, late last year I finally got both the time and funds to do an eight day oil painting photorealism class, which was a blast. The product is here:
Can you tell who that is? :)
Thank you for the watch!
Anonymous asked you: Hello, i’m a big fan of your art! I would like to ask you something, if you wouldn’t mind: what made you choose to become a vet? Would you ever consider being a full-time artist?
Cheers for liking my stuff! Long answer short: I’m not an artist because I don’t consider myself creative or self-motivated enough to make a living in art, and I’m a vet because science and animals are neat things.
Anonymous asked you: please please can you do more Vet comics! I nearly cried reading ‘New Graduate Problems’!
Working on it! I reckon I’ve got enough scenarios to make a new batch - just gotta sit down and make the tragic comedic.
Anonymous asked you: I was wondering if maybe you would be willing to answer a few questions about being a veterinarian for a school project? :D?
Sure. Either come off anon and shoot me a message so I can reply privately with my email, or I’ll answer the questions here. Either or.
