Beasts

zine review:

Beasts

Ah, dogs. I am one of the worst people to bring a dog to, because I lose all intelligence and resort to baby-talk. So you can imagine my delight (and the loss of IQ points that came with it) when it came to this zine and the contents it held.

This zine bears the motto “drawings for dogs, by dogs,” which instantly had me hooked, because it was just so weird and cute. As I flipped through, I found the myriad drawings ranged between very cute, creative, and somewhat disturbing.

The artist takes random dogs and partners them in various situations, sometimes with humans, sometimes without, and offers them as single-paneled and wordless statements or observations. Most of the drawings offer a keen look into the true joy and love that dogs have to offer. Others show the cruelty that humans offer to dogs as a reward, but it’s done in such a subtle way that it’s not icky. While not graphic, some of the drawings made me do double-takes, while others just made me feel sad. All in all, this is a wonderful zine that says so much while saying so little. It shows the many sides of dogs, illustrated in lovely and varying styles. It’s definitely a zine worth keeping around. (Tara Blackmore)

  1. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you

Your real commitment to passing the solution around appeared to be unbelievably interesting and has in every case allowed employees much like me to reach their targets.

  4. You’ll have not intended to do so, however I feel you have managed to precise the way of thinking that lots of people are in. The sense of wanting to assist, but not knowing how or where, is one thing loads of us are going through.

  5. I intended to post you this little remark to be able to thank you very much as before on the gorgeous pointers you have discussed at this time. This has been quite unbelievably open-handed of people like you to make extensively what most people would have marketed as an electronic book to generate some bucks for themselves, notably since you might well have tried it if you decided. Those points as well worked to provide a good way to fully grasp other individuals have the identical desire really like my own to know way more when it comes to this problem. I know there are lots of more pleasurable situations ahead for those who read your blog post.

  6. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

  7. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our region library but I believe I learned a lot more clear from this post. I’m extremely glad to see such excellent details being shared freely out there.

  8. You could definitely see your enthusiasm in the paintings you write. The sector hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. All the time follow your heart. “Experience is a good school, but the fees are high.” by Heinrich Heine.
