Ben Hed, the creator of Pet Foolery, was contacted to find out what he’s been up to lately. He announced the book to his ardent admirers, saying, “I’ve been spending my spare time working on a Pixie and Brutus comic novel.”
“I was never planned on making them a series, I just thought it would be a humorous idea to introduce an adorable little kitten to a big terrifying war dog,” Ben explained, explaining that it all began with a random comic idea.
People fell in love with the two charming characters as soon as he created the first Pixie and Brutus comic, and he just continued making them. Ben has a cult following of 2.5 million people on Instagram thanks to his signature sketching style and quirky characters.
When asked how his Pet Foolery comics have evolved over time, Ben stated that the most significant shift has been “just my art style.” “Looking back at my early comics and seeing how much cleaner and better my artwork is now is very exciting. It gives me great pleasure to observe the progress.”
