Crazy Idea: Support The Arts By Actually *Buying* Some Original Art

Seahawk illustration by Dakota McFadzean
If you purchase this original artwork, Seattle will crush Denver at the 2014 Superbowl. (If you’re a Broncos fan, buy this drawing and burn it, and then Denver will definitely win.)

As I hope you guys know (and appreciate), Prairie Dog and Planet S commission and print more original art than any other Saskatchewan publication. Every issue of the ‘Dog has drawings and comics by Dakota McFadzean and Myron Campbell — both incredible and hardworking Saskatchewan-born talents we’re honoured to regularly work with.

You might not, however, be aware that Dakota sells his original art. He does! And it’s affordable!  The image above, for example — which ran in this issue’s Bonus Column — can be had for a mere $60, including shipping! That’s peanuts!

Click here for more details. Then buy it, frame it and hang it in your home. Congratulations! You’ve just supported a great artist and more importantly, you own dome great art! You are now supercool!

  1. Oh Ron, I had no idea you were cladist. I’m sure to you, all aves look the same, but you need to check your privilege. Joking aside, the hook shape of the beak clearly identifies that bird as a raptor, rather than a pigeon with its generalist beak.

    Also, the stripes on the ball do not uniquely identify the ball as a CFL ball. American high school and college football use stripes as well. Until 1975, the NFL used stripes on balls played under artificial lights. They even briefly used a white ball with black stripes for night games. Unfortunately, I can’t find any evidence that stripes were introduced prior to the transition to plastic helmets, so there may still be an inaccuracy in this drawing of a football-playing bird.

  2. Sorry, Ron, didn’t mean to come across so pedantic. I was probably just jealous that you noticed the stripes (which I didn’t). Then I got curious about the history of the stripes and the NFL football in general. Did you know the NFL football is officially called “The Duke”? I sure didn’t.
