You don’t just wrestle with a mountain lion and walk away without a scratch. The important thing is that you walk away. So Bigfoot’s gonna get in a little recuperation time while Scout takes over guard duty. It may not be optimal, but it’s the best they’ve got right now.
I’m still running the Sketch Card Giveaway. If you want to get your hands on the Running Bigfoot card, just leave a comment under this week’s page. Just say something nice because Scout’s nerves are on edge.
Finally, I felt a little empty this week because I didn’t have any fan-art to post (curse you, other cartoonists with busy schedules!) but then BAM, out of the blue, the night before my update, I received a wonderful Bigfoot/Scout illustration from Esa Holopainen in Finland! FINLAND!! I can’t tell you how long I looked at this lovingly-crafted illustration with a giant smile on my face, but it was a pretty long time because my face hurt afterward. Esa’s illustration exudes this old-world feel that is just magical to me. I love this. And, in fact, Esa told me he’s never done any fan-art before but he really likes my Bigfoot. I am truly honored! If you’re a fan of Esa’s take on Bigfoot and Scout, feel free to leave a comment for him below. I’m sure it’ll be appreciated. And if you’d like to see more of his work, here’s the english-language version of his website! -v
