Agnes is known for her work with dogs. Agnes first started drawing when she was over 9,000 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the sultry pressure of being a child prodigy slowly got to her and she had a sassy breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own big toe! Agnes found spotted inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her den for all the couches to see! Agnes eventually got married to Ronald McDonald and they remain together blandly in their barn with their .3 children. Agnes would like to thank George Washington, Zha Zha Gabor and James Jean for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest is playing with an idea at the thumbnail/brainstorming stage. The hardest is translating that to a large, finished drawing. Lots of things that seem great in a hasty sketch don't end up translating to the finished product and need to be changed, especially in regards to layout of the art.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
It's the top piece in the preview for 15x13.
But you can't see it without the book! So I'll pick this one instead: Acrobats 2, It really fits with what I plan to do with the story, and the way the characters relate to each other - one is hiding something, they are physically close but mentally disconnected, one looks forward as the other looks inward, and one has a much darker outlook than the other.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
A lot of my friends are here, and it's easy for us to advertise each others' work to people who might like it. It's put my art in a place that is very accessible to interested viewers.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Oh, I've had many odd comments, but then again, I draw some unsual things. But here's an unprompted one on Spider's Prey
"nice concept, but its not good with a guy spider....needs to be female!!!"
