Trail of Smear

I have the oil spill on the brain. In movies when people die I hardly ever get upset, but when an animal dies it is burned into my brain for weeks. I care about human life, but there is something that rips at my insides when I see an animal suffering.

I know what you mean, but I think it's because animals are innocent, so anything that happens to them as a result of human negligence is tragic. Love the watercolors and the use of negative space.

I'm with you on that one, it's painful to see animals suffer. Simple but meaningful drawing.
