For almost as long as I can remember, I have been drawing creatures. I like drawing them for a lot of reasons, in the context of this post, the reason is simple. I don’t want anyone to feel like they’re being singled out. I’m questioning the status quo, taking the conventional wisdom to task. They’re not meant to offend, just to provoke thought and start a conversation. Sometimes they’ll stand alone and sometimes they will be accompanied by a blog post. I sign the pieces CREACHER. Taken from 2 Corinthians 5:17, which in the KJV says, “Therefore if an man be in Christ, he is a new Creature…” Creature combined with preacher (which I also am)= “CREACHER” It’s not exactly an alter ego, more of a pen name. Post them, publish them, spread them around, take them viral. And if you really like the cartoon, you can click on the image and buy it on a shirt from our Zazzle store.
A friend had posted several pictures of owls and my wife has been really into owls lately so that definitely influenced this piece. Also I wanted to try a straight on view and play with symmetry. Bird of Prey was hatched from these influences. Plus owls eat groundhogs and I have had enough of winter. Don’t be surprised if you see this car in Punxsutawney.
