I am comic artist BeastFlaps, and I made a promise to myself to be productive this year by just drawing a different grumpy animal every day for a year. Now I am on day 81 and the first 100 are being made into a real book. AMA
My short bio: It was the first week of the new year, and I had a pile of paperwork to sort through, a backlog of work to get done and more than a few bills to pay. I was asked to stop everything and urgently draw a cute greeting card for a friend (as a favour... of course) and before I knew it I had drawn an angry duckling saying QUACK F***ING QUACK. It made me laugh out loud and I shared it online.
it was making a few other people smile too (You probably met Grumpy Pig, Grumpy Sloth or Grumpy Bear here on Reddit), and so a promise was made. No matter what else life would bring in 2020, I would set aside enough time each day to draw and post a daily grumpy animal. Today is day 81.
The first ever grumpy animals book is now available to pre-order from amazon and will be available in other physical formats closer to the release date. I also receive quite a lot of requests for the grumpy animals to be shipped out on various apparel and homeware over at grumpyanimals.com
