Renee French and Her Furry Friends

Note: I don’t know why our last post had commenting turned off. Whoops! Must’ve clicked something by accident. Fixed it, so that comments are possible.

Comics illustrator Renee French has a blog where she posts doodles on a daily basis. Some are as detailed as the image above, others are simple line drawings. The subjects of her drawings can be completely unexpected, but the themes that come up consistently include creatures, houses, animal traps and kids dressed in very warm winter clothing. The more pages you go through on her blog, the more you feel like you’re being sucked into the universe of these pictures, questioning what you see less and less.

Renee’s blog is updated every day, but she also has an old website where you can see the books and comics that she’s published, including Grit Bath on Fantagraphics and a book called The Soap Lady. My favorite comic on this site. My favorites short comic stories on the site are Duck and ZZZ.

    Renee French is the high queen of awesome. She is a constant inspiration to me.

    I have Edison Steelhead’s Lost Portfolio. It is definitely worth getting.

    When I first saw that rabbit with orthodontic headgear sketch a few years ago, I had to send it out to everyone I knew, it pleased me so. It’s still printed out and posted on more than one friend’s wall. So glad to know who made it! Can’t wait to explore her blog…

    I can’t think of anything better than cute animals wearing orthopedic braces and headgear. LOVE IT.
