Jolly Old Bigfoot

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on December 25th, 2014

Merry Christmas to all Cryptomundians!

A blast from Cryptid Christmas past!

Several Cryptomundo readers emailed us about a Bigfoot cartoon this morning. Even earlier than that was an email from the cartoon artist himself, letting us know of the cartoon.

Here is the email that we received from cartoon artist Doug Savage:

Hi! I love Cryptomundo! Thanks for maintaining such a fantastic resource for us cryptozoology enthusiasts. I thought you might get a kick out of my cartoon today: enjoy!
cheers,
Doug

And here is the cartoon.

Jolly Old Bigfoot Doug Savage Chickens

Here’s some background on Doug from his website, Savage Chickens: Cartoons on Sticky Notes by Doug Savage.

When I was a kid, I drew cartoons all the time. I drew cows and alligators and pigs and superheroes. I drew a platypus named Ed. I drew a dead dog named Dead Dog Bob. I drew everything I saw and everything I wanted to see.

Many years passed. By a strange series of coincidences, I found myself working in an office. The more I used a keyboard, the worse my penmanship became. The constant hum of computers made my brain twitch. That’s when I stopped drawing cartoons.

Then the chickens came.

Like some sort of haunting supernatural force, the chickens bubbled up from the ol’ subconscious mind. In a trance-like state, I drew them on office whiteboards. I drew them in notebooks. I drew them on anything that sat still long enough. People started asking, “Who’s drawing those damn chicken cartoons everywhere?

The chickens were unstoppable. To retain my sanity, all I could do was grab a stack of sticky notes, and release the Savage Chickens.
