Like how I find many artists, I found Natalie in the wondrous world of Twitter. But it wasn’t just that her art really grabbed my attention. It was her storytelling. I frankly am now avidly reading through Snarlbear, Natalie’s webcomic, and if there was one word that would perfectly describe this comic it would be: Magical. Seriously, read it.
Fortunately, she was able to spare her time and talent to create a special comic for this anthology. I am very excited that she’s on the book.
Here is, Natalie Riess.
First of all, cats or dogs? (or both?) Any particular reasons why?
I think both are cute but I'll always be a cat person.
What’s the inspiration behind your work in Furr 2?
Every cat I've ever owned/lived with has been very weird and beautiful...growing up we had indoor/outdoor cats and I always wondered what they got up to.
What quirks or peculiarities does your pet have that you won’t find in other cats?
The cat I wrote my comic about folds her paws very daintily when she sits, and it's extremely cute.
Which animal describes you better, a dog or a cat?
If you could either be a cat or a dog for a day, which would you choose, and what would you
I would be a cat and I would take a NAP.
Which would you vote for president? A dog or a cat? And why?
I guess a dog would have less ulterior motives and be better at doing a job, but I like cats better in general.
Let’s say Furr 3 happens (crossing fingers). Other than dogs and cats, what other kind of
stories about animals do you think we should try to include?
Hmmm...I have a lot of feelings about bugs in general...I'd be interested to hear people's horse stories too.
