THE FURRY THINGS

Although felines are usually the focus of Kamwei Fong’s drawings, a few furry mutts and pedigree pooches have started to steal the show.

THE FURRY THINGS

“Be happy. Be childlike. Be ridiculous” is the working mantra of illustrator and ceramicist Kamwei Fong. His creations, which span fluffed-up drawings to petite sculptures, are friendly manifestations of these ideals. The Kuala Lumpur–based artist originally made his mark drawing cats, but describes himself as “definitely a dog person. Spiritually, I’m very close to these creatures.” Fong creates his highly textured illustrations using a simple black-ink pen. Multiple layers of mini strokes create critters with a tactile and irresistible lightness. His commissions include poodles, Pomeranians and, most recently, a dapper Scottie dog strutting its stuff with undeniable zeal.

CELEBRATING FIVE YEARS

A heartfelt thank you to all the photographers, artists, illustrators, and writers who trusted us, dived in, and brought us delight, grace, excitement, courage, wilderness, and wonder over the last five years. Their work not only reflects the bonds we share with our animal companions, it also celebrates their spirit.

None of this would be possible without our four-legged counterparts who sprinkle magic dust time and time again, and our readers, who embraced this kooky idea, rallied around us, and made this world theirs too. With friends like these, who needs nine lives?

THE WRONG END OF THE STICK

Grippingly cringeworthy in places and charmingly endearing throughout, The Wrong End of the Stick is a dark comedy by Terri Matthews. Malcolm’s humdrum life is interrupted by an identity crisis, leading him down a bizarre and beautiful tale of things left unsaid, leg-humping, and plenty of awkward staring. Set against a live-action background, but with very human animated characters, Matthews manages to expertly play with humour and heart, touching on carnal urges, communication and open-mindedness.
