Yeah, I know, just what the planet needs, yet another Blog. But this one is the OFFICIAL Blog of Illustration-ist, cartoonist, humor- mongerist, greasy Stooge-Shemp Howard-enthusiast, Danny Thomas glass coffee table ponderist Drew Friedman! Happier now?

THE MORONIC DEER HUNTERS
Awhile back I was contacted by Field & Steam magazine to do an illustration for them. The art director was someone I liked, and had worked with at Entertainment Weekly, so I asked them to clarify what exactly Field & Stream magazine was... "A magazine about... Fields & Steams?". Of course I knew it was a magazine about hunting & fishing, so naturally, being a Jewish, anti-hunting, vegetarian, I welcomed the challenge. I wound up doing a few illustrations for F&S, until the editors finally caught on that I was drawing the animals heroically, and the hunters as stupid looking as possible. They finally stopped calling.
This illustration appears in my latest anthology "TOO SOON?" from Fantagraphics books.
