Charlie Brown Free Print

By Max-Dunbar
Pencils by Max Dunbar
Inks by Vitali Iakovlev :iconvitali-iakovlev:
Colors by Sean Ellery :iconseane:

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 :iconweapon-brown: 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.

This work is powerful. The emotions conveyed, the tiredness, the resolution to see things through... This encompasses more than one generation and expresses the weary thoughts of many a human being. Thank you.

Well done !!! :)
it’s a very nice reference to the movie " A Boy and his Dog. " ;)
This may seem like a dumb question, but where is the button for the hi res download?

Not dumb at all! If you just look on the right side of the page, you should see a Download button. Right above "More from Max-Dunbar"

I saw this floating around Facebook, and I was so taken in that I had to reverse image search it to find the original artist.  Absolutely fabulous work.  Kudos and thanks to all three of you.

I am sure this has been asked of you, but have you read "Weapon Brown"? It is a wasteland world based in old sunday comics, very mich like this. I really love this picture by the way, it is extremely well done.

This really spoke to me. I ended up cosplaying this at a local convention last weekend. I was surprised by the number of people that recognized me from this piece of artwork.
