Dave Eggers

As well as writing, publishing, doing great things for kids etc., Dave Eggers also draws animals (for fun), and has released a book of images entitled It Is Right To Draw Their Fur. Eggers reveals his process to be this: “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.” Yikes.
