Have you imagined yourself as a farm animal sanctuary owner? I am a chicken so I know I would never ever be able to run a sanctuary. Even a small one. The only thing I can at least do is to help sanctuaries and animals with my art. It was about half a year or so ago, I was reading about some bizarre incidents that happened to the sanctuaries I've been following. It is about animal activists vs sanctuaries. Imagine when you are trying your best to protect your animals and suddenly someone who just sees things from outside starts accusing you for nothing like, for example "your sanctuary is too small " etc and you start losing your supporters because of the words they spread. In the post about the incident, I happened to see the comment from Love Always sanctuary that said they also had to confront those activists some time ago. So I was curious and went to see their IG and that was the moment when I saw Mr. Pig having watermelon with his signature big smile just innocently and I imagined how scary and sad for her to see his smile being completely oblivious of what was going on outside the sanctuary and just innocently depending on her. So I swore to myself I would draw him someday and have a fundraiser to support them. We the animal lovers should not judge. We should love and support.
They recently rescued the cuties, Cookie and Olive. Cookie is such a rock star. Zooming and hopping. He even jump over his best friend (or are they family?), Olive's back. I've heard the founder of the sanctuary is a vegan celebrity personal chef so Mr. Pig as a vegan chef for her homarge!
