So a few people have asked to buy prints of this, but since I (we) don't own the characters, and since it was an equal effort between three people, we're not going to sell it. You can download the hi-res version of this, and get it printed yourself!
Then, find us at a convention, and come get it signed if you'd like!
A few people have wondered if this was inspired by Weapon Brown by Jason Yungbluth Which has a post apocalyptic Charlie Brown as it's lead character. I'm embarrassed to say I wasn't aware of this amazing comic before I posted this drawing. If you're at all interested in the general concept of a post apocalyptic Charlie Brown, check it out! It's beautiful, hilarious work. It can be found here:
It also wasn't inspired by Harlan Ellison's "A Boy and His Dog" I unfortunately haven't read the novella, or seen the movie. (Also embarrassed by this)
It was more or less loosely based Road Warrior. In the movie, he's sort of just roaming the wastelands with a scrappy little dog, and that's the first thing that came to my head when I was trying to think of an interesting take on Snoopy. (Which was the Sketch_Dailies challenge topic on twitter)
A few people have pointed out that this dog doesn't look like a beagle (Snoopy is a beagle)
I made the decision when drawing it, that Charles Schultz's design doesn't look much like a beagle either, so I tried to mimic his features (rounded nose, etc) in my style.
Anyways, sorry for the incoherent ramblings, I just figure that all of this could be answered at this stage, because there seemed to be a lot of questions.
Hope you enjoy the print. I (we) just ask that you don't resell it, or re purpose it for profit.
Very nicely done in terms of drawing a futuristic bad ass adult version of Charlie Brown.
And as of January 2022.
May Charlie Brown's Original Voice Actor, Peter Robbins, Rest In Peace.
Not much more needs to be said. God bless and please be sure of it to treasure your life while finding some happiness in it.
As opposed to get too depressed to where you pull the trigger on yourself.
