Somewhere along the way as I owned a Newfoundland dog and began writing the novelette “Factory Tails: All Good Dogs Walk on the Left”, I began to experiment with loosely drawing Ebony’s head and giving it a geometric-like background effect around the image.
One of the results is this drawing of “Rocky”, a main character in “Factory Tails”, and another version is offered below.
“Factory Tails” is a world in which dogs are the protagonists, the antagonists, and…well, dogs are all the characters in this story told in a time when only dogs remain on the Earth. Just like their human predecessors, these dogs compete for work and retirement benefits in the factory, Big Blackie Biscuits, the only working industry in the country.
