Dave Eggers and his unveiled talent

Share on Facebook Buzz this
American writer, editor, and publisher Dave Eggers recently unveiled yet another creative talent: the knack for drawing. His "It Is Right to Draw Their Fur: Animal Renderings" was lately released and it's available from McSweeney's online store or from Amazon.

Eggers explains of his artistic process: “This past year I went back to drawing animals. The process for these pictures is pretty simple: I find an old photo of an animal that somehow has some intrigue, and I use a China marker to freehand a version of that animal onto very smooth paper. Then I think of what that animal might be thinking — if that animal had an antagonistic relationship with humans and was vying with those humans for the favor of a Catholic God.”

The pictures he's drawn of animals are simplistic, but the detail lies in the fur.
