Cale, the cartoonist behind Things In Squares, says that his animal drawings are troubling but at the same time trying to be sweet. They show that animals can compete, be impressed and escape problems by rising, and so on, just like humans.
Cale told Bored Panda,« Animals have three main characteristics which are ideal for comics. “They’re adorable and people can talk to each other. Second, I can give them characters such as painting a white canvas. They are innocent. Thirdly, they are different and imagining them in anthropomorphic roles will make them enjoyable.
“My birds are based, like the bunnies, on animals stuffed from my youth, not the animals themselves.” Illustrator adds: “My comics are strange.
“When you’re hovering over the picture at least two new comics a week, each with a poem. The artist says that his drawings are insightful–only if “the absurd is filtered.”
He blends his three biggest interests–online comics, web design, and comedy. Cale enjoys what he does.
