Artist Illustrates The Sad Reality Of Animal Cruelty And Shows How Factory Farming Harms Our Planet

Our ocean, land, and the array of species that call it home are succumbing to the poison of plastic. According to the United Nations, at least 800 species worldwide are affected by marine and land debris, and as much as 80 percent of that litter is plastic. It is estimated that up to 13 million metric tons of plastic ends up in the ocean each year—the equivalent of a rubbish or garbage truck load’s worth every minute.

And the ones that suffer the consequences of this are not only humans themselves, but also animals. To bring some awareness to the state of our planet and its inhabitants, Joan Chan, a comic artist from Hong Kong, started a comic series called “Just Comics.” “Just Comics” is a project that’s meant to educate people and bring awareness about the state of our planet and topics such as factory farming and animal cruelty. Joan hopes that her informative comics can help reduce the suffering of animals that are bred for meat, clothes, etc.

Funny Animal Pics That Just Don’t Make Any Sense, As Shared On This Instagram Account

Animals aren’t always as majestic as wildlife photography contests depict them. Sometimes they look as derpy as me and you. And believe me, I wouldn’t be saying such a thing if I didn’t have any proof to back it up.

Enter Doggo Taxi. It’s an Instagram account that shares random animal photos with no context whatsoever. Like cats helping their owner to puke. Or walruses highjacking a boat. Whatever you can’t think of, Doggo Taxi has it. The best part, these pictures are strangely wholesome too. Continue scrolling and check them out yourself.

This Library Attracts The Public By Dressing Up One Librarian’s Cat As Literary And Movie Icons

The Center County Library is a public library (with three different branches) located in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, USA. However, what separates this library from all the others is the fact that it has a very special employee: a cat named Horatio. Every week, Horatio stars in the hashtag #caturday on the establishment’s Instagram, contributing some really wholesome pictures.

To attract the public and increase the number of readers and consumption of art in general (even if it is those nostalgic films like the “Princess Diary,” “Star Wars,” and so on), social worker and Horatio’s owner Lisa Shaffer turns her cat into iconic Hollywood, historic and pop-culture figures, be it real or fictional characters.

“Horatio lives with me but his cardboard cutout is at our main branch in Bellefonte. He is a sweet and docile cat and he always knows and is interested when I’m crafting a costume for him. He gets treats when we do a ‘photoshoot’ and is quite patient when dressed and sits for the photo. We worked our way up from hats and bowties to shirts to wigs and more elaborate costumes, all of which Horatio wears easily,” Lisa told Bored Panda.

Artist Illustrates How Doing Anything Is Much Better When There Are Animals Around

Chilling alone is fine, but chilling with animals is the best. There’s nothing better than vibing with your furry friends; you get the best of both worlds. You still can feel like you have company without the unnecessary noise that comes from hanging around with other people. Let us introduce you to an artist who portrayed it perfectly in her mini illustration series.

Peijin (previously here) is a self-taught freelance artist based in Munich, Germany. Just a little bit more than two years ago, she gave up her engineering career and fully committed herself to art. Her decision was supported by her fans and clients alike, so she never looked back. Besides her illustrations, she also makes tutorials, process videos and studies, as she believes that if she can be an artist, everyone can! Drawing is her true love, and she feels many people feel the same way.

Cute Fashionable Animal Clay Dolls By Valentina Gekova

When someone mentions a doll, we usually imagine a human doll in Victorian clothes, or a Barbie. But there are many different ways to make and dress up a doll, and Russian artist Valentina Gekova shows this with her works. To put it shortly, she makes very cool dolls of animals like dogs, lizards, giraffes and others dressed up in very cool and comfy clothes, like tracksuits, sweatpants, jackets, etc. Though it doesn’t sound all that usual, the combination makes for a good end result.

“My dolls are made of baked clay. I’m totally self-taught, I haven’t studied anywhere. I’ve been doing this work for 5 years and since then, this has been my main activity. At first I made small clay jars, then I made a (human) doll. And after that came the idea of making an animal doll. I like the modern look of the clothes I put on my dolls. It’s not vintage and it’s not history, but what surrounds us in life,” Valentina told Bored Panda.
