Hi, my name is Ben, better known as Pet Foolery on Instagram.
It was about 4 years ago while working on my dad’s construction crew (and drawing comics in my free time) when I had the idea to make a cute little comic about a tiny innocent kitten meeting a big scary ex-military dog. I never planned on them becoming recurring characters, but Instagram liked them so much I just had to make more comics showcasing the misadventures of these unlikely pals.
To date, I’ve drawn over two-hundred P and B short comics with a whole cast of supporting characters to boot.
It’s been quite a ride, so far. I honestly still can’t wrap my head around the fact that over two and a half million people enjoyed my comics and characters enough to follow me for more! I have my dream job as a full-time artist thanks to you guys.
So, thank you.
Anyways, the natural next step from short comic posts on Insta and Webtoon was to make a full-length physical comic that P and B fans can hold in their hands!
Whelp, it’s finally here!
As of May 20th, this project has raised $110,000 of their $12,000 goal. This project has 25 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $10 you will get one digital comic. For a pledge of $25, you will get one printed copy. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pixieandbrutus/pixie-and-brutus-gnome-sweet-gnome?
