If you don't already know who Pixie and Brutus are, they are one of the cutest and most lovable animal duos on the internet, if you want to see why, just scroll down and check it out for yourself. Ben Hed is the artist behind these series, the comics feature two best friends, an adorable little kitten and a scary but warmhearted soldier dog whose life completly changed after becoming friends with Pixie.
Ben shares his comics on his Instagram page “Pet Foolery”, it has more than 2.4 million followers and you should totally check out his other work if you like the content below.
Bored Panda reached out to the creator of Pet Foolery, and Pixie and Brutus comics, Ben Hed, who told us in an interview that not much has changed since Ben started the series. “I’ve updated their designs a bit, and I’ve begun to mix in a few comics where Pixie is older, but outside of that, it’s pretty much the same ol’ Pixie and Brutus.”Fortunately, Ben said his job hasn’t been affected by the pandemic since he lives alone with his two dogs. “I work from home, so nothing really changed for me.”
Ben’s Pet Foolery Instagram page has a whopping audience of 2.4 million followers. But when asked whether the illustrator is planning on featuring human characters in his pet drawings, Ben stuck to his initial idea. “I’ve had some good ideas for human-only comics, but I think it’s best to stay consistent on the animal theme.”
That doesn’t mean, though, that coming up with fresh ideas for his continuous comic series is easy. “With animal comics about recurring characters and a continuing story (i.e Pixie and Brutus), I find it’s getting harder and harder to come up with new ideas and jokes.”In a previous interview with Bored Panda, the comics maker suggested not to be afraid of trying out different things, especially if you’re having creator’s block. “Some of my highest-performing comics were new concepts, deviations from my normal style and format,” he said.
