Dogs on the 4th is an artistic outlet for American artist Elliott Fairweather’s strange and unusual notions, which are wrapped in the most entertaining ways with dark undertones. We are occasionally humiliated by the artist’s bringing out of the world hidden and often incorrect thoughts, and the consequence is slightly unsafe for work. The ability to discover humour in strange and simple things, as well as sarcasm and unexpected twists in each of these eccentric little stories, make the comics incredibly engaging and interesting!
Although dark undertones are not for all, Dogs on the 4th has a following of 44.4k individuals who can enjoy a black joke. The artist says that he is “creating a webcomic for the coffee-stained masses” on his Patreon page, where Fairweather puts additional and exclusive content, and it helps him stay sane and brighten the day of other people a little.
The thing about the coffee-stained masses is a nod to millions of us waking up, having coffee that morning, and moving through a routine that we’re not in love with. I’m a very messy drinker as well. I’m running out of connections,’ the artist said.
My ability to build stems from a willingness to make people laugh. Without exception, the best compliments I have ever got was that someone had a rough day and wanted a chuckle. I got great reviews, and it really inspires me to keep on going. I’m doing my best to keep my readers interested, and frankly, they’re one of the best parts of doing this. Making weird content draws fellow weird people, and as a result, I’ve met a lot of really cool and interesting people! ”
Apart from making people a little happier around them, drawing comics is a perfect way of self-therapy.
