Vegetarian types are always trying to convince meat-eaters that, if they look closely, they'll see that the animals they so fondly consume actually look like people -- but typically, the animal more closely resembles a cheeseburger. Further humanizing animals for consumption by your wall, the guy behind Berkley Illustration.
Using the motto "Animals, creatures, and friends want to meet you!", Berkley's an ever-expanding collection of absurdist portraits depicting various species donning human clothing and poses, all created by a proudly vegan PDX illustrator who feels animals wear suits more naturally than they do sesame seed buns. The latest lineup additions include the white tuxedo'd, red boutonniere'd "Mr. Donkey", the grinning, suit & tie'd "Mr. Llama", and an astronaut-suited puppy inspired by Strelka, the 1950s Russian cosmo-dog who was actually treated better than humans, in that she got to explore outer space without performing boring experiments on plants. Blurring the line between human and not are two sub-series: "Kenny", a black furred, yellow-eyed superhero with his own MySpace (kennylikesyou) who can patriotically shoot a flaming eagle from his chest; and "Skeletor's Wake", depicting Beast Man, Tri-Klops, and other He-Man nemeses "all grown-up and reflective" -- but not to the point that they'd sing a liltingly mournful "Oh Danny Battle Cat".
To slide further down Berkley's rabbit hole, check out "Let's Share", a blog maintained by the artist's photographer wife that'll keep you updated on newly released items, and the couples' own craft-fair travels -- including a recent Seattle trip where they pigged out on vegan chocolate that, if you peer closely, looks almost like real candy.
